At the end of November, the campus community was invited to an open meeting to form and join working groups addressing the critical questions of the changing landscape of higher education.  As a result of that event, seven groups have been at work defining their research questions and approaches to addressing them.

Current Mini-Hubs with Champions:

 Dual Use:  How can MOOCs be leveraged to improve the in-class experience for GT students?  What are the special issues of using a MOOC to flip or blend a course?  Champion:  Bonnie Ferri, ECE

 Delivery Mechanisms:  How can mixed reality technologies be used to enhance learning in MOOCs and on-campus courses?  Champion:  Racel Williams, COA

 Physics Labs:  How can a physical science lab experience be designed for students in a MOOC, or other online learning environment?  Champion:  Ed Greco, Physics

 Library Support:  How can the library provide resources in a MOOC?  How can the library facilitate the faculty in finding open access learning resources?  Champions:  Lori Critz, Library and Cari Lovins, OIT

 Motivation:  What are the real issues of keeping students engaged and involved in a MOOC?  Which social components of a class are not or cannot be replicated online?  Champion:  Al Ferri, ME

 Math Bridge:  Can a MOOC environment help GT to efficiently and effectively serve incoming students who need a bridge course to ensure their success in their first math course?  Champion:  Shannon Dobranski, Center for Academic Success
