Twitter hashtag: #oldsmooc_w9

This final week will provide opportunities to review your learning and plan any next steps in developing your curriculum and learning design practice. It will be a show and tell week, in which projects which have developed during the course will be selected by the OLDS MOOC community for review. Our final week also falls in the same week as Open Education Week, some of the OLDS MOOC activities have been selected to be part of OEWeek.

The week will be led by Dr.Yishay Mor and all the MOOC facilitators.

Learning outcomes
  • Reflect back on the journey you have completed, your goals and achievements, and what you've learnt along the way.

  • Identify questions for further exploration and plan your path ahead.

Where would you like to go next? What questions has OLDS MOOC opened up for you to explore in the future? Add your post to the “final reflections” cloudscape
