Faculty Food for Thought: “Teaching in the Era of Coursera”

Bob Dale, Psychology

Wednesday, Nov. 28, noon-1 p.m. – AU111 (UClub) 

Help, the MOOCs are coming! Actually, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are already here. Harvard, MIT and UC-Berkeley sponsor edX.  Sixteen universities (including Stanford, Johns Hopkins and Georgia Tech) contribute to Coursera. Sebastian Thrun of Stanford University founded Udacity and, last fall, 160,00 people from 190 countries signed up for his artificial intelligence course. Squeezed from below by for-profit schools and from above by the elite universities, we risk becoming the baloney in a baloney sandwich. Bob Dale, psychology, will discuss our options. 

Lunch tickets to The Market Place will be provided. So that we can best be prepared, please RSVP to Rebecca DeGrazia (
