MOOC: First Steps into Learning and Teaching in Higher Education

May 21, 2012 – June 23, 2012 all-day

You may choose to take part in the weekly Guest Speaker sessions separately since they’re interesting people and topics, and it’s not necessary to be participating in the full course to find them relevant.

This is a MOOC, a massive open online course, in which SCoPE is a partner. It is developed by the HEA/JISC-funded OpenLine Project at Oxford Brookes University. You can find out more at the Brookes University site.

  • Rhona Sharpe, “Welcome to the course – and – An introduction to open academic practice.” Wednesday 23 May 2012, 1500 BST
