Is there something we have missed out? How would you like to get involved?
The main remit of the SIG is to enable people whose work relates to MOOCs to compare notes and share experiences.
A subsidiary remit of the SIG is to provide a broader forum for the discussion of MOOC-related issues, including issues like:
quality assurance and enhancement; the impact of MOOCs on teaching and learning, and on strategic developments in campus-based institutions.
The SIG is deliberately not seeking to define what is (or is not) a MOOC but rather will encourage participants to share notes and compare experiences across a wide range of “MOOC like" activities. Doing work relating to MOOCs is taken to include, but is not restricted to:
teaching in a MOOC;
authenticating MOOCs in the business and education communities;
working on content or assessments for use in MOOCs, and their overall design;
developing or maintaining platforms for MOOCs;
providing learner-support within MOOCs;
researching MOOCs and evaluating their impact;
setting policy that relates to MOOCs;
sharing good practice relating to MOOCs;
using MOOC-inspired pedagogy or techniques.
The remit is consistent with the ALT Strategy’s “vision” and “mission”.
The remit supports, in particular, aims 1, 2, 4, and 5 of the Strategy:
1 - ‘be an authoritative voice on the place that learning technologists and learning technology have “at the heart of modern learning”’;
2 - ‘support member organisations to achieve their missions more efficiently and cost effectively’;
4 - ‘bring together those with shared problems across sectors, technologies, pedagogies, job
roles and countries to help to provide research-informed solutions’;
5 - ‘be an agile and transparent organisation, responding quickly and effectively to developments, and espousing open standards and processes’.

Proposal to set up an ALT Special Interest Group

Planned remit of the SIG
Explanatory notes about the remit
Questions or challenges - focus together on a subject at a set time ...
... which might feed into a Learning Technologist Handbook of practice guidance for MOOCs - eg as a Wikiversity Community Project...
... and other resources eg Zotero group library
Satire? Fiction? Comic strip? Haikus? Jokes?
Webinars - who would we like to hear from?
Blogging - filter blogging and analytical pieces.

As a sector which is newly competitive and now has trade secrets, what CAN'T we share and discuss?
How to surface other initiatives to sustain eg http://katyjordan.com/MOOCproject.html
Filter blogging - sense-making beyond bookmarking
Questionnaire - snapshot of
SIG interests - please complete:
1. Form groups.
2. From the list (Seb's original call) spend a couple of minutes deciding what you want to talk about.
Then discuss - use the following prompts if helpful.
What is the potential here?
How do you see this evolving?
What could go wrong here?
What could you do now as part of this SIG to advance this interest?
3. Feedback - topic of interest and comments
