    Dina's Bio:
    Whether I am helping a student take the next step after college, facilitating a career workshop or organizing group runs through the trails over the noon hour, I am always working, playing and living well in the great north woods. I came to Duluth and St. Scholastica four years ago. I adore the big city life and still love playing in it, but most of the time I am enjoying the woods and all the beautiful things northern Minnesota has to offer.

MOOCs and Coursera

A bridge on the William & Mary campus (the second oldest college in the U.S.)

I’m taking my first MOOC! I’m sure you’ve heard all the buzz about them…the massive open online courses. My hubby has already taken a couple classes through Coursera but this will be my first. Intro to Philosophy begins on January 28. It is 7 weeks long; requires about 2 hours/week of commitment; is totally free; taught out of The University of Edinburgh; and currently has at over 260,000 students enrolled!

I’m also taking business and social psychology courses. Fun! I love learning and, an educator myself, I am curious to see exactly how much I can learn in 7 weeks, online and with 260,000 classmates.

The Fat Canary in Williamsburg, Virginia.

There are so many neat classes being taught out of universities all over the world…including St. Scholastica!

Current students might enjoy complimenting their education with a MOOC. And classes like Fundamentals of Personal Financial Planning are great for new grads. Check it out!

P.S. The images in today’s post are from the College of William & Mary and the Fat Canary restaurant in Williamsburg, Virginia. When I finished my master’s degree and my baby sister her bachelor’s my mum took us on a trip. We pretty much threw a dart at the map and hello Williamsburg. We had more fun than we imagined and stories that we will laugh about and share forever. I could travel the world just visiting campuses. I love college and I love learning. (Thanks Mum! xo)
