Daphne Koller, one of the founders of Coursera, will come to UBC to join professors and senior administrators in a panel to share the University’s experience with its pilot Coursera courses and discuss the broader impact of MOOCs on teaching and learning.
Last fall, UBC announced an agreement with US-based company Coursera to offer free, online, non-credit courses to a worldwide audience. Founded in 2011 by Koller and fellow Stanford University professor Andrew Ng, Coursera aims to transform teaching and learning through MOOCs.
This panel discussion will be hosted by UBC’s Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology as part of the 2013 CTLT Institute.
