Autism MOOC

In 2015, Swinburne offered a popular and highly successful free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for parents, families and carers living and working with individuals who have Autism. The course launched on World Autism Awareness Day in 2015 and attracted more than 15,000 participants.

The MOOC design included a six week course, using a scenario-based learning approach to support, guide and share stories and experiences from parents and experts in the field. Participants received a certificate upon completing the course.

The Autism MOOC team are now offering a range of courses for professional development available in online and blended learning formats.
