This resource is a collection of webpages which detail various components of teaching and learning. While I find each webpage to be a great quick and easy reference for the various concepts, I have quite a bit of difficulty navigating around the site utilizing the side menu. I recommend using the 'site maps' located in the upper left hand corner to understand how this information is organized, and to navigate throughout the collection.
