The TLTC often refers to information for planning purposes and thought it might also be of use to the UNC community. Below are links to UNC campus homepages, academic calendars, helpful best custom writing service and directories.

UNC Large Enrollment Course Redesign Pilot Project

The Pilot Project represents the beginnings of a grassroots effort by faculty, administrators, and instructional support staff within The University of North Carolina to find ways to address the consequences of the need to the necessity of offering large enrollment courses to meet an increasing demand for student "seats", especially in introductory courses. An initial step is to examine the potential uses of a methodology for redesign that has already demonstrated consistent success in redesigning courses in a variety of disciplines and types of institutions of higher education. This methodology of redesign was developed and implemented for a research project funded by the Pew Foundation and implemented by the Center for Academic Transformation at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The ultimate goal of the Pilot Project and later redesign activities within UNC is to develop a collaborative support infrastructure for redesign where any of the 16 institutions in UNC call upon a very rich pool of talent to plan and implement redesign projects.

MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching)

The UNC TLT Collaborative has worked with the UNC Division of Academic Affairs to jointly support UNC participation in the national MERLOT program. MERLOT's mission is to improve the effectiveness of teaching and learning by expanding the quantity and quality of peer-reviewed online learning materials that can be easily incorporated into faculty designed courses. Each year several UNC faculty participate in national MERLOT review panels and other MERLOT projects.

Interest Groups

TLT interest groups serve as core structures to promote collaborative professional development through ongoing work in selected areas of interest. Interest groups may communicate in regional or UNC-wide meetings, through online tools such as discussion forums and mailing lists, and by videoconference or phone conference. The annual UNC TLT Conference serves as an additional venue for activities associated with TLT interest groups.
