Faculty Development Community Portal

MERLOT Faculty Development

Welcome  – From the Editor

Welcome to the MERLOT Faculty Development Portal, featuring educational resources for teaching and learning in higher education, both in face-to-face and online environments. You are invited to join MERLOT—it's free—and participate in this growing community of instructors. Our faculty development collection contains materials covering teaching strategies, teaching challenges, instructional design, learners and learning and assessment


The MERLOT Faculty Development Portal is designed to help you learn about the variety of instructional strategies and issues that could help you become a better teacher. The resources you’ll find in the Pedagogy Portal should apply to teaching a variety of disciplines. This collection of resources should help you answer questions that teachers ask:

  • How do I teach large lecture classes effectively?
  • How do I engage my students in problem-based learning?
  • Do I have to teach adult learners differently than recent high school graduates?
