My Profile

Greetings ~ I am Carol Yeager, mentor, instructor and course developer for the Center for Distance Learning, Empire State College, State University of New York. My areas of interest are life-long learning; collaboration, creativity and change leadership; the arts and blended learning opportunities.[[1]] I am looking forward to learning and participating in this global exchange initiative.

Professional Background

Personal Background

Greetings to all. I am a practicing artist as well as a life long learner. I have been associated with Empire State College since 1989. For 8 years I was traveling and teaching for Empire State College's International Programs in Greece and Lebanon. In addition to my life and travel as an artist, and my work with Empire State College, I can also be found working on Broadway shows in Manhattan from time to time. I discovered long ago that moving targets are hard to hit - so I keep moving!! In my spare time I have been, to name a few other pursuits, a photographer, magazine editor, graphic and set designer, real estate agent, theatrical agent, travel guide, writer, paralegal, painter, carpenter and a farmer ... I have recently completed another graduate degree through the ICSC MS program in Creativity and Change Leadership at [2]Buffalo State. Expanding my horizons as a life long learner offers great adventure now and for the future.

My Projects

In partnership with [Dr. Betty Hurley-Dasgupta][3], and under the auspices of SUNY/Empire State College, we have launched the College’s first MOOC (massive open online course): Creativity and Multicultural Communication[4] This is our first entry into the concepts outlined by OERu and the UNESCO guidelines. While we are now mid-run for the 13 week offering, it will remain available for your perusal and contributions now and well into the future. We currently have 344 registered participants and are recording each weekly live session for asynchronous viewing by anyone. Feel free to come in whenever it is convenient for you. The course/learning journey is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike.

Two of our earlier presenters were [Stephen Downes][5] and [George Siemens][6], two of the fathers of the MOOC learning experiences ... a few of our more recent weekly discussion facilitators have been Alicia Arnold, author of "[Creatively Ever After][7]"'', Russell Schoen, [Creativity and FourSight facilitator][8] and Stavros Michailidis, founder of [Innovation Bound][9].

  • Great to see you in the tutorial, Carol, and to see your user page. Do you have any concerns about the quality of educational resources developed using an open authoring approach? If so, what are your concerns? If not, how does an open authoring approach contribute to high quality learning materials?--Phil Bartle 04:25, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
