While designed primarily for instructors, the HRIX is also of value to practitioners looking to refresh or expand their knowledge base. This forum for cataloging, sharing, and recognizing people for their teaching innovations is made possible through the sponsorship of The Society for Human Resource Management and Ohio States Fisher College of Business. The site can be found at:
