OpenLine kick-off meeting – the EdDev mooc is taking flight

Jenny, Marion and I met today on Skype to thrash out some of the details about actually running our HEA/JISC funded OER project, First Steps into Teaching as a MOOC! We are really fortunate to have Jenny working with us on this project. She has been engaged with the MOOC movement since its inception and has solid educational development experience. Jenny will be leading the pedagogical design of the course. We will announce the start date shortly, but basically put the last two weeks of May and first three weeks of June into your diaries. With a fair breeze, that’s when its happening.
