MOOCs, Blended Learning and Flipped Classrooms @ BU: What have we learned?
The Digital Learning Initiative would like to thank everyone who joined us for our half-day workshop on February 27, 2015 about MOOCs, Blended Learning, and Flipped Classrooms at BU: What have we learned? Our workshop consisted of short presentations and panels where both faculty and course assistants who have participated in MOOCs and blended learning efforts at BU shared their experiences and lessons learned. Below are recordings of the two panels in case you missed the workshop or would like to listen to our conversation again.
Panel 1: Lessons Learned from BU MOOC Pioneers
Associate Director of the DEI, Romy Ruukel, opened our workshop with a discussion about the ins and outs of producing a MOOC at BU. In our first panel moderated by DEI director Chris Dellarocas, Professors Andy Andres (Sabermetrics) and Paul Blanchard (Differential Equations) along with course assistants Duy Doan (Art of Poetry) and Mark Kukis (War for the Greater Middle East) shared lessons learned from the MOOC-building process.
Panel 2: Blended and Flipped Teaching and Learning at BU
During the second session, discussion shifted to blended and flipped teaching efforts at BU in subjects including engineering, romance languages, and public health. Panelists included Aaron Stevens, Gerry Fine, Susan Griffin, Stormy Attaway, and Wayne Lamorte.
