Mapping the Learning Space

Wednesday, January 1, 2003


MERLOT and NLII are working collaboratively to explore and categorize emerging issues in teaching and learning online. The possibility of building a portal that guides faculty, faculty development officers, and instructional designers to rich, Web-based resources demands a new, accessible subject categorization of the field. MERLOT and NLII are now working on this mapping of topics, definitions, and materials. MERLOT's faculty development initiative, MERLOT TWO (Teaching Well Online), and NLII's research of effective learner-centered practices have created some interesting results. The panel will share these results with the audience and ask for input on refinement, next steps, and perceived bumps in the road ahead.
