Draft course design for a MOOC about Open Science

Here’s a quick course design that I offered to Jon Tennant for his forthcoming MOOC about Open Science. Ten glass modules. Glass is a nice metaphor for openness, obviously. 

I saw Jon’s course, which looks amazing, and figured offering a design would be a nice evening project. Open science is certainly something I support; I’ve previously designed this one page overview of Open Access Journal Publishing.

As a general thing, I really believe having an overall course design is really important.  It’s not enough to just illustrate concepts one-by-one in each lesson. You have to somehow tie the whole course together into a coherent whole, as I’ve tried to do here, here, and elsewhere.
