AECT 2016 – What Teachers’ Say Works and What They Learned from Participating in a Professional Learning MOOC

This is the first session that I am blogging from the Association for Educational Technology and Communications 2016 annual convention.

What Teachers’ Say Works and What They Learned from Participating in a Professional Learning MOOC

  • In Event: TED – Teacher Professional Development: Materials and Strategies

Tue, Oct 18, 1:00 to 2:00pm, Conf Ctr, Conference Rm 11

Short Description

This session presents an overview of the K12 Blended and Online Environment MOOC (pseudonym) designed to provide professional development opportunities to teachers in the state of Georgia. Results from an evaluation conducted on the MOOC and a discussion of the findings will also be presented. This session will benefit those interested in designing and evaluating MOOCs for K-12 teachers.

  • Anissa Lokey-Vega, Kennesaw State University
  • Lee Langub, Kennesaw State University
  • Julia S Fuller, Kennesaw State University

This session – which was the second 30 minutes in an hour long session where the first presenter thought that he had the full hour – was focused on the K-12 blended and online learning MOOC at Kennesaw State University (and we’ve talked about this MOOC many times in this space, see below).  I should also note that this MOOC is being offered again in the new year, so sign up now at:


I didn’t take detailed notes of the session, as most of the information I have captured in the two OLC 2015 sessions described below.
