2010 Institutional Stewardship Award
The Institutional Stewardship Award is given to an individual or group to recognize efforts to promote MERLOT at an institutional level. These models can be used to sustain support for MERLOT and that demonstrate the value of MERLOT. The recipients of the award (individual or group) will have exhibited an outstanding example of stewardship in spreading the use of MERLOT through-out the campus or system. The recipients for 2010 include:
MEITAL/MAOR - Accepting award from Gerry Hanley is Eli Shmueli
MEITAL is a consortium of Israeli universities that partners with MERLOT to access and contribute materials to the MERLOT website and repository. Faculty at these institutions, through a coordinated consortium plan are actively using materials in the MERLOT collection in their own teaching and learning. As well, the consortium is actively submitting Hebrew language materials to the collection. This latter activity would not have been possible without MERLOT and MEITAL’s cooperative development and testing of a significant upgrade to the MERLOT (Oracle) database that resulted in our community’s ability to submit, search, etc, materials in foreign languages.
CSU Noyce Scholars Program Team - Accepting award from Gerry Hanley is Elizabeth Ambos, Co-Director
CSU Noyce Scholars is a community of educators and student teachers dedicated to improve the quality of teaching and learning in Science and Math with online resources with a special focus on California's high need schools is at the heart of this project. The National Science Foundation's Noyce Scholars Program has provided the leaderships and support to help prepare the teachers of tomorrow to be successful in our high need schools.
The CSU Noyce Scholars program was granted an NSF award to use the MERLOT collection and teaching commons to develop a set of services to support student teachers and new teachers in high need schools in California. Although the design of the website is focused on serving the needs of CSU Noyce Scholars, the website is an open educational resource for everyone to use.
