May 24 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The University of Edinburgh Moray House School of Education, Centre for research in Digital Education. This seminar will discuss models of and approaches to active learning as a way to face this double-bind. It will present various examples of tasks using or related to digital culture and technologies within Humanities and Social Science disciplines – tasks which aim to foster creativity and critical thinking. Finally, drawing from ethnographic data on MOOCs, it will debate this issue: can we consider MOOCs as counterexamples of “good practice” for 21st century learners?
