Moodle MOOC 2 on WizIQ

  1. View the recording of Dr. Dean Radin's live event on WizIQ: wiziq.com/online-class/1412312-moodle-mooc-2-supernormal-from-a-scientific-perspective

    Supernormal (Random House, July 2013), discusses -- from a scientific perspective -- ancient legends about supernormal powers developed through the practice of yoga.

    Dr. Dean Radin , Chief Scientist, Institute of Noetic Sciences who appeared on the movie What the Bleep do we Know: Down the Rabbit Hole (2006) will discuss his new book Supernormal (Random House, July 2013) from a scientific perspective -- ancient legends about supernormal powers developed through the practice of yoga. To do this, he will discuss what yoga is really about (it isn't what we see in most health clubs around the world). Then he will describe what the traditional superpowers are and consider if they are merely superstitions or something more. Dr. Radin will focus on scientific experiments investigating these abilities, and he will conclude that some of the legendary powers are in fact true. This has immense implications for our understanding of human potential, for science, and for society. The foreword of the book is written by Deepak Chopra.

    Dean Radin, PhD, has been studying advanced capacities of human consciousness for over 30 years. He is presently Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences and Adjunct Faculty in the Department of Psychology at Sonoma State University. He previously worked at Princeton University, University of Edinburgh (in Scotland), AT&T Bell Labs, and SRI International, where he participated in a program investigating psychic phenomena for the US government (Stargate). He is author or coauthor of over 200 technical and popular articles, two dozen book chapters, and three books including the award- winning The Conscious Universe (HarperOne, 1997), Entangled Minds (Simon & Schuster, 2006), and now, Supernormal (Random House, 2013).

Moodle MOOC takes place three times a year (June, October, February) for one month of sharing and collaborative learning. The MOOC is available on WizIQ (live online presentations) click here to access the course and on Moodle for Teachers (Moodle 2.5 training). The themes of the MOOC are

Collaborative Learning

Mindfulness Practice
Connecting for Learning
Socially Engaging Activities
The MOOCs focus on improving instruction and learning with technology using Moodle and other web-related educational technologies The live presentations include the speakers’ reflective process on teaching and learning in fully online and blended learning formats.

Moodle MOOCs include Moodle for Teachers (M4T) courses for beginners and advanced Moodlers. The courses will be asynchronous (Moodle) and synchronous (WizIQ) with recordings on WizIQ, YouTube, and Vimeo.

There will be two learning areas: WizIQ course area and Moodle for Teachers (M4T) Moodle website. The live online sessions and recordings, tutorials (courseware) and ongoing discussions (course feed) will be available in the WizIQ course area.

Unlike the traditional MOOCs that stress content and course delivery, Moodle MOOC will focus on active learning, reflection, sharing, and collaboration. The aim of the course is for the participants to learn through meaningful connections and social interactions. Participants who wish to receive a certificate of participation will be required to document their learning experiences by keeping a blog, wiki, website, or any other artifact that will include a description and reflection of the live sessions and/or recordings.

M4TLE is a self-paced component of the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on WizIQ for teachers and anyone interested in teaching online using Moodle, WizIQ, and other web technologies.The MOOC is in the spirit of open education and is completely free.

Participants will become acquainted with Moodle as a course and learning management system. They will learn how Moodle can be used in fully online, blended learning, and the flipped class. The course will only include asynchronous (not dependent on time) element on a Moodle site called Moodle for Teachers. The course is self-paced with ongoing discussions (facilitator and technical support available), live online classes (recordings), videos, and other relevant content.

Workload

In addition, participants will be able to learn to manage a Moodle website as a teacher or manager. The course activities and resources are available below.

Certificates of Completion & Badges
Participants, who are active on the coursefeed (discussions), attend all and/or view the recordings of all the sessions, reflect and write about the live sessions and share the link of their activities (blog, wiki, Moodle, facebook and other social networks) will be eligible for a certificate of completion.
