Details about the bi-annual call:
Every semester, CITL issues a call for requests for support and invite faculty to submit a brief request form for support any of the following areas. After you submit your request, someone from the Center will be in touch with you.
Enhancing Instruction using Online Tools: Would you like your students to engage in coursework online between face-to-face meeting times? Are you looking to enhance your use of Course Site, perhaps through discussion forums, online assignments, wikis, blogs, virtual collaboration sessions, streaming video, quizzes, databases, feedback, Turnitin, etc.? Submit a request and CITL Instructional Technology Consultants will help you design the course and find the right tools for your goals.
Course-related Student-produced Video or Website Projects: Are you planning to have students produce video, documentary, or website projects as part of a summer or fall 2015 course? Do you want help making these projects more educationally valuable for students and more satisfying for you? If so, submit a request and CITL staff can help.
Creating Course-related Faculty Instructional Videos: Would you like to create videos (brief lectures, demonstration videos, discussion-prompting videos, case study videos, video clips of a process or event for students to analyze) that would supplement your existing class? If so, submit a request below. If it looks like we can help, you will have an opportunity to work with CITL consultants to find the right approach for your goals.
Teaching and Learning with Google Glass: Are you interested in making use of Google Glass in a course you are teaching in spring '15? CITL owns two pairs of Google Glasses faculty can borrow, so please complete a brief request form and we'll help if we can.
Request a TRAC Writing Fellow. Are you interested in having highly skilled peer tutors help your students with their writing and research? If so, now is the time to request TRAC Writing Fellows for your spring 2015 courses.

CITL staff can provide guidance on course planning, online course design, engaging students in the online context, content delivery options, using online learning tools to promote learning, using online tools to assess student learning, promoting academic integrity in online courses, and related topics.
Using Research Computing Facilities for Teaching Purposes: Lehigh's Research Computing Team supports a variety of platforms and software for research and high performance computing (described more fully online at http://researchcomputing.lehigh.edu). If you are teaching a class and want your students to work on projects that require the use of these computing facilities, submit a request and we'll be in touch to discuss how we can help.
General Teaching and Learning Topics: If you would like to meet to discuss some aspect of your teaching that is not technology-related or is not covered by the topics listed above, please complete a request and the Center Director will be in touch with you to arrange a time to meet. Past conversations have focused on topics such as enhancing classroom discussion; enhancing lectures; enhancing presentation skills; effective use of group work; teaching diversity and diverse students; implementing active learning approaches; using project-based learning; designing effective assignments; assessing student learning; classroom management and organization; selecting appropriate instructional technologies; and promoting academic integrity.
