free webinar on Learning to Learn Online: A #MOOC with a difference for novice online learners

This CIDER webinar will outline the design and delivery of a MOOC with a difference where facilitators encourage MOOCers to participate in discussions, share knowledge and experiences, and to network beyond the duration of the course.. The LTLO course embraces a "learn by doing" philosophy providing participants a variety of fun and effective learning activities. The course is a mixture of directed, self-paced and community of inquiry (COI) learning environments. Components of typical online courses will be discussed and applied throughout. 
Participants will see first-hand the environment of this MOOC for novice online learners. They will also have the opportunity to discuss and critique the MOOC design and delivery process and outcomes. Finally, they will hear the results of this "facilitated" MOOC, involving 1525 participants. You can read more about this MOOC at http://www.ltlo.ca
