McMaster University is set to begin new research on MOOCs and related teaching tools with the help of a global expert. As the new Santiago Ramón y Cajal Distinguished Scholar of Global Digital Learning at McMaster’s Paul R MacPherson Institute for Leadership, Innovation and Excellence in Teaching, Barbara Oakley will collaborate with McMaster faculty members to create a Skills for Success specialization that will combine her Learning How To Learn MOOC with four McMaster MOOCs. She will also advise on other MOOCs and hybrid and online courses. “I think the MOOC is a mirror that showcases how learning is evolving,” said MacPherson Director and AVP Teaching and Learning Arshad Ahmad. “Learners want offerings to be personalized, engaging, flexible, continuous and useful.”
