Welcome to the Teaching and Learning (T&L) Group!

The T&L Group Mission

To drive innovation on teaching and learning within the Sakai community. To share best practices, understandings and experiences among faculty members themselves and between faculty and other Sakai community members. To communicate the goals and issues of the teaching and learning community to contributors in Sakai including developers, UX (user experience), system administrators, documentation, support, and QA (quality assurance).

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" (i.e. "pedagogy") 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

This group has begun a new initiative, referred to as "instructional visioning", which is focused on the need 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 (posted 9/15/09).

Teaching and Learning Group Initiativesn
  • Instructional Visioning - Initiative to produce "tool/technology agnostic" visions of the types of instructional practices Sakai should facilitate and support.
  • Teaching with Sakai Innovation Award - Started in 2008, this program aims to highlight examples of educational applications of Sakai which are considered innovative or transformative in nature.
  • Pre-conference Teaching and Learning Workshops - Each year we work to organize a pre-conference workshop that focused on sharing teaching and learning best practices.

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.
