McGill University recently launched a new GROOC (Group Open Online Course) for people interested in connecting and learning with social programming activists around the globe. Details for the course can be found at the following link: https://www.mcgill.ca/desautels/programs/grooc.
The 7,000 participants have the option of joining one of many groups on specific topics or of participating as individual members. The group I’m connected to is about scaling social initiatives to maximize impact. We’re a team of ten people from Canada, Turkey, the UK and the US who have been working online (through Google Docs, Skype, email and EdX posts) to consider our social impact values, share articles and experiences, and look to learn from each other. I’ll post details about the final project as it develops.
