So you think your lecture course is better than a MOOC? April 23, 2014

Forum Video Recording:

Amidst all the hype of online education, the Committee on Teaching threw an event,

"So you think your lecture course is better than a MOOC?" which aimed to highlight contemporary

teaching methods.

Faculty, lecturers, and students came and stretched their pedagogical muscles by listening to a variety of

“lightning talks” from UCSC professors on their successful instructional techniques.  There was lots of opportunity

for Q&A with the presenters and audience.  Talks included:

Charlie McDowell - "Having your cake and eating it too-why is it either or?"

Kirsten Silva-Gruesz - "Leading with Reading"

Kevin Karplus - "Designing Courses to Teach Design"

Bruce Bridgeman - "Psychology vs. Experience: Do you see what's on your retina?"

Dan Selden - "Teaching and Transference"

Michael Chemers - "Presence and Transformation: What's Missing from a MOOC"
