MOOCS, DOCCS, and other possibilities: Opportunities and challenges in converting a science methods course online

Geeta Verma, Associate Professor of Science Education, School of Education and Human Development

Online learning has become a disruptive force in higher education. Various institutions of higher education are beginning to create Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) as well as beginning to make more of the course offerings online. We will discuss the following ideas in this presentation:
1) MOOCS vs. DOCCS (pronounced as DOCK):  While MOOCs have been perceived to be a game-changer, there are various challenges associated with this model of teaching. It is worth looking into another model of online learning called Distributed Open Collaborative Course (DOCC).
2) Challenges and opportunities in converting a science methods course (lab based) fully online; and
3) Exploring modalities (MOOCS, DOCCS, and other options) in transitioning courses to online spaces
