Hi everyone,
+Katia Hildebrandt and I are writing a paper on connectivist MOOCs as a vehicle for digital literacy development. We have seen amazing growth and development by many of you during and since #etmooc  and we are hoping to gather a few comments on your experiences. If you have a few minutes, we'd love to hear your feedback on these questions:

1) How has your participation in a MOOC ( #etmooc  or other) increased your digital literacy?

2) How has your participation in a MOOC ( #etmooc  or other) helped you to become a more active and informed digital citizen?

We will, as usual, use the #etmooc hashtag. Rhonda Jessen and I will lightly facilitate the session. If you want to prime the pump, you can take a look at the infographic and executive summary at the beginning of the @NMCorg Horizion Report > 2016 Higher Education Edition ( And please don't forget that we're still very much working to honor our source of inspiration, Alec Couros, through donations to the newly-established Mario Couros Memorial Bursary: -- you can make a difference by donating at a level that is comfortable for you and helping to attract other donors to this wonderful #etmooc-based effort to support quality education.
