Online Courses, Assessment, Certification and Credit
Join us on April 12 for the Spring Scholarly Communication Symposium, Online Courses, Assessment, Certification, and Credit. This symposium focuses on a discussion of student learning and assessment in an online environment and comes in the context of the recent launch of a major campaign to expand Georgetown's technology-assisted learning (ITEL). This new initiative has stirred a lively discussion on campus about online learning, and particularly about models for assessment, certification, and credit in massive open online courses. Our symposium brings representatives of some key players in online education to campus, and lets them share their vision, experiences (and evidence!) with our faculty. The presentations will be followed by an open Q&A session.
