2015 Content Anchors

The survey has closed and the results are being tallied. Results will be announced at the ELI Annual Meeting 2015 in Anaheim, and online.


Each year, the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative conducts a survey to identify the key themes in teaching and learning in higher education. The top six content anchors serve as leading themes for ELI events and publications throughout the year. The results are published on this site in the form of a downloadable infographic that can be used in campus discussions.

Based on the input of 530 community members, the graphic below displays the 15 content anchors and where they ranked in the 2015 survey.

The top six anchors constitute the thematic framework for the 2015 Annual Meeting and while not exclusive, they represent the areas of keenest interest across the teaching and learning community.
