Your situation (context)
We are planning on prototyping our own MOOC. Our initial thought is to reuse OERs created by Media Services in UCD on Food and Health or from the Scholarcast series on Irish popular culture. We would also be interested in including OERs from others. The MOOC will use the OERs as a basis for online discussion and activities.
A risk of using food and health is that anorexia champions or diet faddist could take over the MOOC. It would have to be heavily monitored.
We could ask participants to contribute resources such as details of their own diet as text, audio or images. We would encourage peer to peer support and evaluation.
The change you would like to see (challenge)
|Development of a prototype MOOC. Potential benefit the university where work
How you might go about bringing that change
|Social constructivist approach.
