Out There and Right Here - Online Learning in Lewes
Wed 5 April 2017, 20:00 – 21:30 BST
Out There and Right Here is a public meeting exploring the best of online learning and how you can make the most of 'MOOCs' (massive, open, online courses) by joining up with other, local learners.
Dr Wendy Maples, founder of the University of Us (a new, Lewes-based learning initiative) will
- introduce online platforrms such as FutureLearn and Coursera which host courses developed by some of the most presigious universities around the world;
- explain why being a 'digital native' is not the same as having digital learning literacy, and why knowing how to use a library is a great online learning advantage;
- discuss the principles of social learning and the open educational resource movement and why creating local learning initiatives right here makes what's out there more accessible and enjoyable.
Please come along to listen, ask questions and connect with other online and local learners.
