Get In MOOC: Joint winner of the Roger Mills Prize


We are delighted to announce that the BLE's MOOC - Get Interactive: Practical Teaching with Technology was presented with an award on Friday 16th March at this year's Research into Distance Education (RIDE) Conference.

The Roger Mills Prize for Innovation in Learning and Teaching, sponsored by the University of London International Programmes, is named in memory of Roger Mills, a longstanding and well-loved former Fellow of the Centre for Distance Education and Pro Vice-Chancellor of the Open University. Roger made a major contribution to the support of innovation in learning and teaching in University of London International Programmes through his contribution to projects and academic policy development. This prize commemorates his contribution.

Having worked closely with Roger on a piece of work only a few years ago, it was even more of an honour to be joint winner in this first award presented in his memory. 

At RIDE, I also gave a paper about Get In MOOC, focusing on how we broke out of the restrictions imposed by Coursera's structure, to create our practical and hands-on MOOC. You can access my slides here.

The next cohort of Get In MOOC starts on 2nd April - find out more here.
