Forty-nine educators in the Philippines recently graduated from a MOOC Camp based on "Leaders of Learning," a HarvardX course taught by Richard Elmore, Gregory R. Anrig Professor of Educational Leadership at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE).
The Leaders of Learning MOOC Camp brought together educators from various school and universities to identify and understand their own theories of learning and leadership. Participants explored the course content online and collaborated face-to-face during three meet-up sessions. They also had opportunities to interact with Professor Elmore, who engaged with students during their learning presentations and shared a video message at the graduation ceremony.
