Dr. Scott Klemmer, Stanford University, “Teaching a Massive Open Online Class (MOOC) with Peer and Self Assessment

Event Date: 
March 28, 2013 (All day)
CHHS 161

:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Dr. Scott Klemmer is an Associate Professor at Stanford University, co-directs of the Human-Computer Interaction Group,  and holds the Bredt Faculty Scholar development chair.  He has recently taught two Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) through Coursera. The course he teaches, Human-Computer Interaction, combines design theory with practical assignments involving design of digital interfaces and applications. With tens of thousands of students, the prospect of grading students' designs would seem insurmountable. To address this issue, Dr. Klemmer has experimented with a variety of self-grading and peer-grading strategies, with mixed success, but very interesting results from a pedagogical standpoint. Dr. Klemmer will share his MOOC experiences in this presentation.
