Scholarship Opportunities

MERLOT's Journal of Online Teaching is a respected peer-reviewed journal for articles on teaching in online environments. MERLOT provides additional opportunities for faculty to pursue scholarship in the area of teaching and learning.  
  • Becoming a peer reviewer for MERLOT editorial boards gives faculty the chance to provide insights on teaching resources while also potentially discovering resources to include in their own courses. 
  • Faculty may wish to submit articles to JOLT and/or become peer reviewers of JOLT submissions. A first hand perspective will be shared during this workshop by faculty currently involved in the peer reviewer process with MERLOT.

The MERLOT collection consists of over 40,000 learning objects—such as tutorials, animations, case studies, quizzes or tests, lectures, and more—that faculty can use in their classes.  All the materials in MERLOT are reviewed for suitability, with many undergoing the more extensive "peer review" for which MERLOT is famous.    Come learn about this wonderful collection and how you can get involved as a peer reviewer.

IDT/CTL Website

Instructional Design and Technology (IDT) and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) have undergone several changes in the last year. The CTL was launched to enhance the services previously offered through the CITE. Complementing the physical improvements, we are redesigning our web presence (which currently includes both http://idt.nmu.edu and http://www.nmu.edu/ctl) into a single, integrated site. As we plan our new website, we would like your input on how the site can be most useful to you. Please use this link to provide your input

Faculty Focus Video Series

Faculty utilize many different techniques to engage students in the classroom.  In this video series we will interview instructors employing creative or innovative teaching methods in the classroom. In addition to the interview, we will have a glimpse into the classroom to see the interaction between students as well as the instructor. Take a look at our first video in the series as we follow Adonna Rometo in "Digestion in Action: Active Learning in a Physiology Lecture."
