April 10 panel discussion: Lessons learned from Coursera

Emory Report | April 2, 2013

Now that Emory has entered the world of online learning, what lessons can be gathered from the experience?  

The Center for Faculty Development and Excellence (CFDE) is working with the Office of the Provost to host a public discussion that will examine the development and presentation of Emory’s first Coursera courses.  

The event takes place Wednesday, April 10 from 3:30-5 p.m. in the Jones Room of the Woodruff Library. The panel is a follow-up to the Academic Learning Community on Online Learning session that took place last fall.   

Faculty, administrators and staff who have developed and presented Emory's first Coursera courses will be on hand to discuss the process and lessons learned, and they and others will be available to answer questions about what is involved in the development of a Coursera course.   

Speakers, with others to come, will include:

  • Lynn Zimmerman, senior vice provost for undergraduate and continuing education

  • Steve Everett, director of CFDE, professor of music, and instructor for Emory's Coursera course, "Introduction to Digital Sound Design"

  • Kimbi Hagen, assistant professor, Rollins School of Public Health, Behavioral Science & Health Education, and instructor for Emory's Coursera course, "AIDS"

  • Lee Clontz, lead multimedia developer in University Technology Services, tech support provider for Emory Coursera courses.
