Enhancing Workforce Diversity and Inclusion

Massively open on-line courses are learning platforms delivering high-quality content to hundreds or thousands of simultaneous users. This IEEE conference provides academic and industry professionals the opportunity to discuss research into MOOC technologies as well as the practical aspects of creating and offering MOOCs to diverse worldwide audiences. Now in its sixth year, LWMOOCs is a respected international forum to collaborate, share, network, learn, and display the latest advances in MOOCs.

Topcis for Discussion

We call for submissions from a variety of disciplines and topics. We encourage submissions that build on the theme of enhancing workforce diversity and inclusion. All submissions will be double-blind peer-reviewed, and a selection will be chosen to present a vibrant program that maximizes time for discussion and participation through a single-track threaded with poster sessions, full-length paper presentations, shorter lighting-round presentations, active-learning workshops, and keynote presentations from leading experts. Example topics, though not limited to this list, include:

  • Increasing diversity through educational access
  • Assistive and inclusive MOOC techniques
  • Expanding the learner community through MOOCs
  • Social implications of MOOCs
  • Smart education and just-in-time learning techniques
  • Open content, open licensing, and MOOC delivery
  • International cooperation in MOOC projects
  • Using MOOCs in employee training
  • Scaffolding courses and planning MOOC curricula
  • On-line MOOC degree programs
  • Learning analytics in MOOC courses
  • Learning science and educational research models based on MOOCs
  • Learning engineers applying sound science with MOOC platforms
  • Machine Learning, AI, and MOOC delivery

Location

Milwaukee is a vibrant metropolitan area on the western shore of Lake Michigan in the United States. Its metropolitan area is the home of 2 million people and major companies such as Harley Davidson, Rockwell Automation, Johnson Controls, Miller Brewing, Joy Global, and Northwestern Mutual. Milwaukee is a city of many cultures and is known for more than 50 major festivals and public gatherings held throughout the year. In addition, with major and minor league sports teams, miles of stunning parks along the Lake Michigan shoreline, four distinct seasons, museums with international reputations, and a full-range of performing arts groups including opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre there is always something to do in Milwaukee!

Venue

The conference will take place on the campus of the Milwaukee School of Engineering. Milwaukee School of Engineering is the university of choice for those seeking an inclusive community of experiential learners driven to solve the complex challenges of today and tomorrow.
