Latest TELall blog: A collaborative digital pedagogy experience in the tMOOC – Step by Step
In this latest blog, Carmen Marta-Lazo (University of Zaragoza, Spain), Divina Frau-Meigs (Sorbonne Nouvelle University, France) and Sara Osuna-Acedo (National Distance Education University, Spain) discuss their paper entitled A collaborative digital pedagogy experience in the tMOOC “Step by Step” (where the “t” stands for transfer).
This paper presents a model of learning transfer towards autonomous empowerment and pedagogical transformation. The paper analyzes social MOOCs (sMOOCs) which are characterised by the involvement and the interaction of participants in a model based on inter-creativity, with the final objective of transferring knowledge by an agile replicating process.
