Faculty in Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning

If you would like to work with Lehigh's Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL) on a class you are teaching in Summer 2019 or Academic Year 2019-20 please submit a brief proposal by Wednesday, May 1, 2019. Someone from the Center will be in touch with you in early May.

We will review and consider any teaching-related proposal and, in addition, offer the following teaching grant opportunities:

  • Proposals that require a substantial investment of faculty time (e.g., a significant course redesign, integration of an innovative project into the course, adoption of a wholly new teaching approach, etc.) may qualify for a CITL Faculty Fellowship Course Development Grant of up to $500.
  • Proposals that focus on substantial integration of Inclusive Teaching practices may qualify for a ODIE/CITL Inclusive Teaching Grant of up to $500.
  • All grant recipients will work closely with CITL consultants throughout the project and will present at the 2020 Symposium on Teaching and Learning or at another CITL event.

Here are some areas in which we have worked together with faculty in the past (additional details can be found in the Consulting section of the CITL site):

  • Consultation about General Teaching and Learning Topics
  • Inclusive Teaching, Active Learning, or Project-based Courses
