The eighth MERLOT International Conference (MIC08) held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is devoted to faculty development in the design, creation, utilization and evaluation of online teaching and learning materials. The MIC08 conference theme, MERLOT: Still Blazing the Trail and Meeting New Challenges in the Digital Age, recognizes the collaborative efforts within disciplines and the education community around the World to enhance teaching and learning through the use of academic technology. Conference attendees span all disciplines and are on the continuum from novice to expert in the development and use of online resources. This year the Community of Practice is Education, which included Teacher Education, Library and Information Services, and Faculty Development.
The MERLOT International Conference is designed to foster learning, innovation and practice in the use of information, instruction, and communications technologies in higher education. It is the venue for educators, administrators, and technologists who have interests and expertise in technology-enabled teaching and learning and who recognize the need to remain current in this rapidly advancing field of educational practice and theory.
The Conference offers many opportunities for attendees to gain practical skills in the use of educational technologies through numerous interactive hands-on workshops led by peers and through industry-sponsored technology showcases. It is frequently in these practical workshops and demonstrations that refreshing new insights into applications of these technologies to higher education are gained.
