Welcome to the Teaching and Learning (T&L) Group!
Hello and welcome! This confluence site is the gathering place for folks interested in teaching, learning and assessment within the Sakai community. We are actively looking for more folks to contribute and add to this community effort so please wonder around and join in in any way you want.
To get involved, join the "Teaching and Learning" (also referred to as "pedagogy") or listserv or discussion group. If you are new to the Sakai Community and have questions check out the quick guide to the Sakai community or e-mail Josh Baron at Josh.Baron@marist.edu.
This space is an interactive documentation process. While you should give thought to what you add here, don't be afraid to edit existing pages or add new ones. Confluence is very good at tracking versions, so you can go back to see what changed at any time.
Following the 10th International Sakai Conference in Boston (July 2009), a diverse set of community members representing UX, Teaching and Learning, Portfolio, and others have been working to organize a new effort focused on the need to find different ways for our community to discuss, identify and document the types of instructional practices that Sakai needs to support now and into the near as well as distant future. This new processes, which is being referred to as "instructional visioning" would produce "tool/technology agnostic" visions of the types of instructional practices (ranging from traditional to innovative) we would all like to see supported. This Confluence page has recently been refreshed as means to provide a new space for Instructional Visioning efforts.

Gathering and Sharing Teaching and Learning Practices
Teaching & Learning Repository
The Sakai T&L community is attempting to determine the best way to gather and share "teaching and learning practices" among users of Sakai. As of February, 2008, we have decided to combine efforts with the already established OSP Community Library which will be generalizing its repository to foster the collection of T&L resources from Sakai, OSP, AAC&U and other groups and projects, following the inter-project model of Fluid. The new repository can be found at:
We discuss the repository in this wiki on the Combined Teaching and Learning Repository.
