This workshop is in collaboration with the Santa Fe Institute, Microsoft, and Boeing

November 9 – 10, 2016 at the Santa Fe Institute in Santa Fe, NM

This two-day workshop is designed to bring educators, academics and industry together to explore new models of education especially as it relates to online learning and the data analytics. In this workshop we will be addressing four major questions:

1. How do we define learning outcomes? How do we best track learning outcomes?
2. What leads to learner success in professional MOOCs? What is the DNA of an effective online learning course?
3. What is the role of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation? Role of social science in MOOC and online learning to increase learner outcomes.
4. What are the requirements for good teaching in the real world and online? Do these qualities translate from face-to-face to online teaching?

For the majority of the workshop participants will be breaking into working groups to address on of these four questions, before arriving please think about which working group you would like to participate in. We will also have a panel on each question.
