ELIXR History


ELIXR is a MERLOT innovation project to foster collaborative design,
implementation and use of digital case stories for faculty development




Part of the motivation for MERLOT was to engage faculty developers as
users

of Open Educational Resources, to help them become more effective
advocates

for OER sharing and use by faculty





Supported by the Dept of Education Fund for the Improvement of Post

ELIXR Lessons

(
about faculty development collaborations)




match delivery schedule and planning schedule



many faculty centers do not plan programs 12 months out




watch out for the ‘zone of proximal development’
-

some project
leaders were simultaneously coping with more than one new area:



new media genre (everyone)



new collaboration processes (many)



new project management processes (some)




build on existing relationships



CalState

Faculty Development Council



Texas Faculty Development Network



Council of Ontario Educational Developers



POD Network would also be a natural extension





use a ladder of engagement with diverse and incremental stages
