ELIXR Websites in MERLOT

These are MERLOT materials that come from the MERLOT-ELIXR project. The MERLOT ELIXR project is intended to develop and test new collaborations amongst faculty development centers and online resource repositories. The goal is to create innovative models for the development, sharing and use of discipline-oriented resources which illustrate exemplary teaching practices and which also support faculty with exemplary learning objects to help implement those practices with their students. In September 2006, the Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education, a program within the U.S. Department of Education, funded a proposal for ELIXR from a team of MERLOT partners and affiliated institutions. The deliverables center around 96 case studies of exemplary teaching, grouped in 6 theme areas for faculty workshops with discipline-specific cases in 16 disciplines. For example, potential themes could include active learning in large lecture sections, or course redesign to enhance student learning while containing costs for instruction. The case studies involve video of both teachers and students to engage other faculty in trying new approaches, and will be accessed in faculty development workshops for the theme areas and also through MERLOT and other online resource repositories. The MERLOT ELIXR project team includes the CSU Center for Distributed Learning and seven campuses of the California State University – where the initial pilot studies were launched in 2006; three MERLOT state system partners: Minnesota, Georgia and Oklahoma; and several leading campuses from a range of institutional types: Coastline Community College, Indiana State University, University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio and the Ohio State University.
