This presentation spotlights the origin and development of the “Open Learning” connectivist MOOCs offered in 2017 and 2018. The project began as a Faculty Collaboratives initiative, sponsored by the Association of American Colleges and Universities, with project administration supplied by the State Council for Higher Education in Virginia (SCHEV) The project sought to create sustainable networks for professional development related to the AAC&U’s “Liberal Education and America’s Promise” (LEAP) signature program. We tell the story of designing and implementing Open Learning ’17 and ’18, highlight lessons learned, and encourage discussion of how national organizations, state government, and both private and public institutions of higher learning might work together to create connected learning platforms for professional development. The designers knew that merely reading about open learning would not effect change. To understand connected learning, one must practice connected learning.
