On May 24th, members of GTI participated in the workshop “HybridEd Workshop: Innovations in Blended Learning with MOOCs” within the eMOOCs conference 2017. The main goal of the workshop was creating a space and an outlet to share and present experiences in Blended Learning (BL) using MOOCs.
During the first part, where several presentations took place, Laia Albó from GTI was presenting two papers related with the use of MOOCs in campus courses in the university. The first paper, co-authored with Davinia-Hernández-Leo, was “Breaking the walls of a campus summer course for high school students with two MOOCs”. A case study of integrating two external MOOCs in a face-to-face (f2f) summer course for high school students and that explore the main challenges from the point of view of the learning design process.
