New MOOC explores social innovation

17 June 2016

Just over a year ago, UCT launched its first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). A new MOOC ‘Becoming a changemaker: Introduction to Social Innovation’ will start on 25 July 2016.

The six-week course, which will explore the concepts and beliefs needed to develop your social-innovation idea, is aimed at those who want to make a change in their community.

After completing the course, learners should be able to develop their concepts, mindsets, skills and relationships, which will enable them to think, start and evolve as social innovators.

Dr Francois Bonnici and Dr Warren Nilsson from the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation will facilitate the course, along with Marlon Parker from the Athlone-based RLabs, as a living, successful social-innovations project case study.
