Episode 5(c) – Planning for the Future with Coursera (Department of Media and Information)

We’re doing things a little differently on the Hubcast this month. Instead of one conversation, we’re are releasing three.  Each of these episodes is a conversation with a different college or department within MSU. While the questions were similar, the responses varied based on the needs, and goals of each organization. Feel free to pick the one that most aligns with your current situation, or listen to all three if you’d like to hear multiple perspectives on MOOCs in general, and Coursera specifically.

On this episode we will be speaking with Johannes Bauer, who is the Chair of the Department of Media and Information in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences.

Episode 0 – Relaunch of the Hubcast

Welcome to the relaunch of the Hubcast everyone. We’re switching up formats for this new version, and focusing more on conversations with our project partners. Have no fear though, if you want to hear older episodes, we’ll have those available soon. So, why are we doing this? Good question! The answer is that  MSU’s Hub for Innovation in Learning and Technology doesn’t function without it’s project partners, and we want to highlight those partnerships, in order to invite others to come and work with us. What does it mean to work with us? Another great question! Basically, there are numerous ways that you can work with the Hub, as well as IT Services. We can act as facilitators for a departmental project, partners in course designs, consultants on technology issues, or as a design group tackling a problem. This is just some of the examples, there are many more, as we try and adapt to the needs of our project partners. So, listen to the upcoming episodes, and more importantly come down to the Hub at Wells Hall, check out our team, ask us some questions, and work with us.
