Viewing Party: The Hype and Hope of MOOCs

January 13, 2014

Can't go to the American Library Association's Midwinter Meeting? Do you still want to be a part of the conversation?

The Hype and Hope of MOOCs, a debate-style symposium, addresses the complex issues revolving around MOOCS (massive open online courses), such as accreditation, measurement and what MOOCS may mean to Higher Education and lifelong learning. Part of OCLC's Americas Member Meeting, the free symposium will be held live at ALA Midwinter on January 24 from 1-4 p.m. EST. If you will be in Philadelphia you can attend in person, but wait...there are other options!

Join us for a Viewing Party (free pizza!) on January 24 at 1 p.m. on the campus of the University of Michigan in the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library lab, room 100, followed by discussion with 2013 Library Journal Mover and Shaker and U-M Special Projects Librarian Emily Puckett Rodgers.

Can't make it to the party? You can register for free to view the symposium via livestream. The symposium will be followed by a moderated teleconference discussion.

Please contact Heather Ladiski ( to register for the Viewing Party at U-M or if you would like to join the conversation via teleconference from the comfort of your office.
