MOOCs and the Public Library: An Opportunity
Join presenter Dorothy Pawlowski as she discusses opportunities for public libraries to promote lifelong learning by becoming meet-up destinations for MOOCs. The webinar is based on the experience of the Ridgefield (Connecticut) Library which hosted a ten-week literature-based MOOC.
This series of webinars features librarians and scholars from public and academic libraries reporting on the latest research about MOOCs and offering practical information on creating and presenting MOOCs. It will appeal to librarians in academic, public, and special libraries. Presenters will discuss the role libraries play in the development of MOOCs and share information that will enable attendees to familiarize themselves with the steps involved in developing a MOOC. Learn more about the Libraries and MOOCs webinar series, both upcoming sessions and those held in 2013 (recordings are available).
