English Faculty Lead Digital Pedagogy Seminar

Jesse Stommel and Sean Michael Morris will lead a seminar about digital pedagogy and "massive open online courses" for the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education in February 2013.

In Stommel and Morris' seminar, Digital Pedagogy and MOOCification, participants will discuss the viability of MOOCs as a pedagogical mode, especially at small undergraduate institutions. Stommel and Morris define MOOCification as "a pedagogical approach inspired by MOOCs that is unleashed in an otherwise closed or small-format course." This seminar will aim to investigate the techniques that MOOCs point toward and that can be used in on-ground, hybrid and online classrooms, no matter the scale.

Jesse Stommel is the director of English literature and new media at Marylhurst University. Sean Michael Morris is a part-time faculty member for Marylhurst University and manager of educational outreach for Hybrid Pedagogy.

Participation in NITLE Shared Academics events is open to all active member institutions of the NITLE Network as a benefit of membership and as space allows. NITLE Shared Academics models a new approach to liberal education – made possible through strategic collaboration, driven by shared knowledge, and supported by emerging technologies. Campuses learn how inter-institutional academic exchange works by actively participating in it, building the knowledge and experience to re-architect liberal education.
