Wow! I’m heading out early this week that I’ll be doing instructional design and training in Cairo, Egypt May 12th-19th! I’m working for World Learning on a USAID program, in partnership with the Egyptian Ministry of Education, (MOE).

The project is called The Education Consortium for the Advancement of STEM in Egypt or (ECASE).

This contract is to assist in a small part of the much larger porject. I’ll be collaborating with World Learning, the STEM school teachers, and the MOE to design and create three MOOC-type online courses in Schoology.com for 10th and 11th graders, and help train content developers.

I’ll blog as I go when I can!

I’ve just finished an exciting consulting gig for World Learning on a USAID project with the Ministry of Education in Cairo, Egypt!

The project is called The Education Consortium for the Advancement of STEM in Egypt or (ECASE)

unit 1 reading the newsThis contract was a small part of the overall ECASE project. I helped find a suitable online platform to host three MOOC-type self-guided courses for 10th and 11th graders in the STEM high schools. These courses are to be completed with guidance from their teachers.

After conducting a needs assessment and choosing Schoology.com as the best, and really only, platform that could handle very unique requirements,  I collaborated with World Learning’s excellent Egypt team, the MOE, and teachers to build and test a demo course.
