Why is MERLOT still the best kept secret weapon for improving higher education?

July 27, 2011 at 11:00am EST

Guests: Irene Knokh, Instructional Design Consultant, MERLOT Editor, and Ray Purdom, Editor of Faculty Development Discipline and Director, University Teaching and Learning Center at University of North Carolina Greensboro

MERLOT – Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching – a program of California State University, has been, since 1997, providing peer reviewed online teaching and learning materials. To date, MERLOT boasts over 30,000 materials and 95,900 members, and yet it is still a widely underutilized tool.   


Irene Knokh, an Instructional Design Consultant and MERLOT Editor, joins this Members-Only session to introduce us to MERLOT and demonstrate its capabilities.  In addition, we will be joined by Ray Purdom,  Editor of Faculty Development Discipline at MERLOT, to lend us his perspective on the broader question of why MERLOT and resources like it aren’t more widely utilized. What are the conditions that faculty and staff face that impede them from using these resources? What can be done to change those conditions? 

NOTE:  Login instructions for the session will be sent in the Registration Confirmation Email. Please check your Junk folder as sometimes these emails get trapped there. We will also send an additional login reminder 24 hours prior to the start of the event.
