This is my first post for Open Learning. I’ve created a blog and am now linking my posts by a feed to the Open Learning collectivist MOOC. This cMOOC is an experiment organized by the Virginia Open Learning initiative as part of a project with the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U; www.aacu.org). The easy way to understand: This cMOOC will try an experiment in community building for academics who are devoted to general and liberal education and who want to collaborate in using open education resources. It’s a crossover project, a boundary-crossing project. I am hoping that the collective of people who join the MOOC will make discoveries together. If we do, we can advance liberal education for all students by working within a larger community of educators than we may have been reaching. It’s all about liberal education, inclusive pedagogies, and open learning together. That sounds easier than it is going to be!
