Professional Development Through MOOCs

So it's the start of another semester and many of us are neck-deep in syllabi, new students, and recovering from winter break.  But for those that might be looking for something to stimulate and get them thinking about their work as an educator, we've assembled this collection of MOOCs that are starting up in the next week or two for you to consider signing up.

There's a great variety of them out there that can help enhance your day to day work or the bigger projects and goals in your professional life.  These were selected largely for their relevance to higher education, but we encourage you to check out some of the different MOOCs that are out there and let us know what you find!
