Vance Stevens, a TESOL PP107 Multiliteracies event

Vance has made changes to the Multiliteracies course that he and colleagues have developed over the last several years, based on their experience and what has been learned from facilitating about a dozen iterations of the course.  In particular the course is more overtly rooted in the MOOC paradigm (where MOOC stands for miniscule open online course) with distinctly connectivist attitudes.  Assessment is done by what I call Me-Portfolios.  Accordingly we will try to make the course weave itself to some extent with what is happening the the EpCoP MOOC at https://sites.google.com/site/eportfoliocommunity/epcop-mooc (the E-portfolios CoP MOOC running through September) and the Change MOOC http://change.mooc.ca/ which started the day after this podcast took place.
