The EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) has special initiatives designed to support the teaching and learning community by addressing key issues in higher education. These special initiatives include the Seeking Evidence of Impact (SEI) program, the annual Content Anchor survey, and the Learning Space Rating System (LSRS).

Key initiatives

Seeking Evidence of Impact

SEI is a program led by the ELI teaching and learning community to find current effective practices that enable the collection of evidence to help faculty and administration make decisions about adopting and investing in best practices.


Content Anchors

Each year, the ELI conducts a crowdsourcing survey among the teaching and learning community to determine its content anchors (themes) for the coming year. From the list of possible topics, the top five or six anchors chosen serve as organizing themes for ELI events and publications.

Learning Space Rating System

The LSRS project provides a set of measurable criteria to assess how well the design of classrooms support and enable active learning activities. The criteria form the basis for a rating system that will allow institutions to benchmark their environments against best practices within the higher education community.
