The Community Course: A MOOC Alternative

American Public University System - Dir of Teaching & Curriculum Quality
In order to explore an applied approach to teaching excellence through the Community of Inquiry (CoI) framework and to serve the professional development needs of over 2,000 faculty, APUS developed a five week course, modeled after a MOOC, with enrollment limited to the APUS teaching and learning community. The course was offered in two cohorts with approximately 1,000 faculty in each cohort.
The APUS CoI Teaching Excellence Community Course allowed for individual work on readings, exploration of associated resources, publication of content, shared conversation on forum topics, and group collaboration on learning activities. This learning journey was designed to facilitate exploration, engagement, collaborative learning, and social networking.
This presentation will discuss the conceptualization, development, delivery, and assessment strategies of this new approach as well as the strategy behind the design and delivery of this alternative to the MOOC.
