Sprague's Pipit: How to bring the International Baccalaureate (IB) emphasis on teaching to MIT OCW video courses and online, and build, especially with the Conference Method?, Similarly, how to bring the Reed College's emphasis on teaching to MIT OCW, The Conference Method in a Google + Hangout, and related, seem to be one way to address this
How to bring the International Baccalaureate (I.B.) emphasis on teaching to MIT OCW video and audio courses (http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/audio-video-courses/), and build on this, especially with the Conference Method, especially vis-a-vis
a) MIT OCW High School -

WUaS International Baccalaureate Diploma and Programme
See the following, all of which are on the WUaS, I.B., wiki page:

(WUaS is planning I.B. degrees in the U.N. languages and a handful of other languages, especially for languages in Africa).
Similarly, how to bring the Reed College's emphasis on teaching to MIT OCW video courses and online, in MIT-centric 'The College at World University and School,' and Ph.D., degrees at WUaS?
The College at World University and School:
Ph.D. Degrees at World University and School:
Both institutions, I.B. and Reed, significantly, emphasize teaching.
An emphasis on great teaching seems to be lacking in the current conversation about online eduction, MOOCs and related fields.
The Conference Method in a Google + Hangout, and related, per Reed College, seem to be one way to address this:
Conference Method of Teaching and Learning:
How to come into conversation with the way Reed instructs its faculty to teach using the Conference Method, and develop this online, and dovetail this with I.B. approaches to teaching?
Lastly, how then to hire, for example, the MIT (and Harvard) graduate students to become online instructors in Google + Hangouts, etc., at World University and School to engage the Conference Method with MIT faculty here - http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/audio-video-courses/ - as the first WUaS faculty so that WUaS becomes an online MIT / Harvard (excellence) of the internet, - and in all 7,413 + languages and 204 + countries?
