Welcome  – From the Editor

Welcome to the MERLOT Teacher Education Portal, an educational resource for teaching and learning. You are invited to join MERLOT (it's free) and contribute to this growing community of teacher education instructors by using the learning materials, submitting your own modules and assignments for evaluation, and commenting and rating the materials in the collection. Feel free to add your favorite materials to MERLOT.  

We are the proud recipients of the 2018 and 2015 House Cup for the most productive board. Our editorial board is composed of teacher educators from a variety of locations: Nicole Kendall Arrighi (Tennessee State University),  Loretta Driskel (Clarkson University),  Kelly Jackson Charles (University of West Indies), Elaine Lawrence (State University of New York-Oneonta, retired),  and Esperanza Zenon (River Parishes Community College). 

We would love to have you join us as a reviewer; email Loretta Driskel (ldriskel@clarkson.edu) for further information.
