Talking about barriers and opportunities to better exploit the potentials of MOOCs, round tables took place to discuss the future and uptake of the outcomes of BizMOOC. Some very interesting points have been made and we are looking forward to the next meetings in Italy and Slovakia!
Out of 32 submission, 11 creative and high quality teaching approaches were selected for the Final round and invited to present their cases in Aveiro, Porto at the 13th European Conference on Innovation and Entrepreneurship in front of an international jury. Chris and Agnes presented our MOOC on Intrapreneurship and even made it to the Top 3, where they got invited to do a second presentation to the whole conference audience before the conference closure. We feel extremely honoured to became part of this exclusive circle.
Besides, we also presented the poster “Rescue through the back-door: Can MOOCs become a large-scale bottom-up innovation driver in companies?”, based on BizMOOC results.
With the BizMOOC round tables taking place all over the Europe, fall season is in full swing! We are busy with second edition of the MOOCBOOK and the Warsaw conference fast approaching. Very soon our German colleagues will speak at the openHPI where a forum took place last week.
36 guests, 4 key experts and 1 moderator – a mix of corporates, entrepreneurs, edupreneurs, policy-makers, lecturers, students etc. – had a lively discussion on 13th of September in Graz, Austria regarding “MOOCs – muss das sein” (“MOOCs – is this really a must”?). The Austrian BizMOOC round table introduced the participants to the core results of the project and followed-up with a discussion how the main project outcomes (especially the MOOC BOOK) and MOOCs in general could be uptaken on a broader scale for the benefit of all. We want to thank all the experts and guest for the valuable inputs and so positive feedback!!!
Exciting News! Our paper “Flexible, self-directed and bottom-up: Are employees overtaking their Human Resource departments with MOOCs?” based on BizMOOC research outcomes has been accepted at Learning with MOOCs 2018 taking place between 26th and 28th of September in Madrid! Three BizMOOC partners (FH Joanneum, HPI & EADTU) will be there to present and discuss our project findings – see you there as well?
