SEAMEO INNOTECH, one of the SEAMEO Regional Centers hosted by the Philippines, recognizes the potential of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) as a delivery mechanism for capacity building and an opportunity to provide greater access to its products, particularly in the Southeast Asian region. It is under this context the conduct of an Action Research Project was conceptualized.
In order to select the best possible strategic option, the Center developed and implemented MOOCs to test it out. Two courses have been implemented: Igniting Passion for Teaching and Teach On: Keeping the Passion Alive. Both courses aims to rekindle and sustain teachers’ passion for their profession. And while most continuing professional development opportunities focus on the tangible skills, the two courses provides an opportunity for teachers and educators to focus on and develop their soft skills. Learners had the chance to cultivate their passion and love for the work they do thru the lessons and stories of fellow educators.
The MOOC of SEAMEO INNOTECH is hosted in KEEP (Knowledge and Education Exchange Platform) via Open edX. For more details and further inquiry about the course, you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
