Opportunities and Challenges in Distance Education

Lessons from an Online Copyright Course

March 7, 2013 - 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm (already occurred)
Beneski Museum of Natural History, Paino Lecture Hall

William "Terry" Fisher III is currently teaching a HarvardX course on copyright and will present about experimenting with new ways to expand student engagement within a MOOC. It will be exciting to hear from someone who is moving MOOCs beyond lectures and quizzes, and to hear what is required to offer a massive, open, online course.

Professor Fisher received his undergraduate degree from Amherst College in American Studies and his graduate degrees, J.D. and Ph.D. in the History of American Civilization, from Harvard University. Between 1982 and 1984, he served as a law clerk to Judge Harry T. Edwards of the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and then to Justice Thurgood Marshall of the United States Supreme Court.
