Scenario planning for educators (SP4Ed)

I have joined a micro Open Online Course (mOOC) Scenario Planning for Educators (#SP4Ed) which starts tomorrow (29th July 2013). A two week long course, this is being offered by the e-Learning Research Lab at the University of Canterbury in collaboration with the OER Foundation.

There are more than hundred colleagues from 33 countries making it a global collaborating community putting heads together on what futures are possible in education. A unique feature of this mOOC is that it is being offered in parallel with an official postgraduate course: Change with Digital Technologies in Education (EDEM630) at the University of Canterbury.

I find the theme of this mOOC very timely when there are so many developments are happening in all sectors of our life, including education in the form of new delivery models, pedagogy, media and technology, assessments, collaborations, open access, OERs etc, lets us think on what futures are possible in education
