I recently discovered the MERLOT Pedagogy Portal. MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching) is a program of the California State University, in partnership with higher education institutions, professional societies, and industry. It’s content is licensed under Creative Commons.
The portal’s content is broken down into 5 categories:
- Learners and Learning
- Course Instructional Design
- Teaching Strategies
- Teaching Challenges
I am just beginning to explore this resource, but I am excited by what I have seen so far.
