Detailed Outline
Following a detailed evaluation of design, planning and delivery of the Enhancing Prostate Cancer Care MOOC , this presentation will share and disseminate key findings from the 1st MOOC delivered by SHU in collaboration with the Prostate Cancer UK charity and PebblePad.
This was a powerful learning experience for the EPCC MOOC course team, who embarked upon this with a number of objectives:

  • To help raise awareness of and engagement with issues around Prostate Cancer and the patient pathway
  • To determine whether our pedagogical approach to online DL delivery could remain effective at scale
  • To ascertain the affordances presented by utilising PebblePad’s personal learning space to deliver a MOOC
  • To raise awareness of the SHU portfolio of online DL and CPD Anywhere provision
  • To test a range of approaches to delivery and (new to us) software and tools and explore their potential for our ‘business as usual’ delivery
  • To explore the potential for aggregating CPD activity to allow participants to submit APEL claims from EPCCMOOC for credit.

During the presentation I will share key findings in terms of lessons learned, impact on existing provision, implications for future delivery and considerations for the institution.
