Joining a MOOC

I have lurked on other MOOCs but not participated, so I’m using “the First Steps into Learning and Teaching massive open online course (MOOC) by Oxford Brookes as an opportunity to engage 🙂

  1. Hi Muireann
    Welcome to #FSLT13. I hope we can keep you engaged. Marion

  2. Hope you’ll enjoy your first all-out, fully participatory MOOC, Muireann. FSLT13 is small in numbers but huge in opportunity as far as MOOCs go, and a great one to begin with. I have a rather checkered past when it comes to MOOCs but I’m determined to really focus on this one. Timing is everything.

    “Opening Digital Doors” describes your passion perfectly. I also have a technology-related passion — to explore with other teachers and teachers-to-be how we can use technology to learn — for both ourselves and our students. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing teachers gain confidence in themselves and their teaching by meeting the challenges that technology so often presents. In many ways it’s like the high that comes with proving oneself in a nature survival challenge. Maybe no zip-lining but still scary 😉

    I’ll look forward to seeing you around the MOOC! Enjoy!
