Massive Open Online Course
Recently, I had the privilege of serving as a subject matter expert in support of a massive open online course (MOOC) entittled "Disasters and Ecosystems: Resilience in a Changing Climate". This course was developed in part through the Partnership for Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction (PEDRR) which is a focal connection point for my resilient community building work on behalf of The Nature Conservancy. This is the very first MOOC to focus on ecosystems and their role in reducing risks to people, property, and society (not to mention co-benefits such as clean water and food provisioning). We estimate that over 12,000 people are enrolled in this MOOC representing over 180 countries from around the world.
