Calls for Requests for Support and Partnership
Details about our bi-annual call:
Instructional technology can help enhance student learning during face-to-face meetings and online between face-to-face meeting times. Examples include the use of Course Site, discussion forums, online collection of assignments, streaming lectures or video, wikis, WordPress blogs, virtual collaboration sessions (e.g.,, Zoom) , videoconferencing, quizzes, databases, feedback, use of Turnitin, etc.
An increasing number of faculty members are developing courses and assignments in which students create videos, websites, or related projects. Lehigh's Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning works closely with instructors to support such projects, offering assignment design consultations, production expertise, instruction for students, course development assistance, advice on equipment needs, help developing the plan to evaluate student work, etc. Starting Spring 2017 there will also be a One Button Studio (https://confluence.cc.lehigh.edu/x/Q6Y2) Available for faculty, staff and students to reserve for self-produced videos.
Faculty can creating videos that help their students learn material either outside of class or during class meetings. Examples include brief lectures, demonstration videos, discussion-prompting videos, case study videos, video clips of a process or event for students to analyze. Depending on the type of project, the video might be created by you (e.g., using Panopto) with our support in the Digital Media Studio, by you in your own office after instruction, or by us with your guidance. Starting Spring 2017 there will also be a One Button and Lightboard Studio for faculty, staff and students to reserve for self-produced videos. If it looks like we can help, you will have an opportunity to work with CITL staff to find the right approach for your goals.
If you are teaching a fully online course for the first time or looking for help in enhancing an existing online course, CITL staff can meet with you to discuss general 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.
TRAC Fellows are talented undergraduate student writers from across the disciplines, recruited through a highly competitive selection process and trained to work with your students on their writing, library research, and use of technology.

Greg Skutches, Director of Lehigh's Writing Across the Curriculum Program, is available to meet with you to discuss the role of writing in your course. Typical consultations involve a conversation about the outcomes you expect from having students write, your level of satisfaction with current writing assignments, ways writing assignments can enhance learning in your course, suggestions for designing writing assignments to improve student learning, etc.
The CITL Research Computing Team offers 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 Lehigh's research and high-performance computing facilities, submit a request and we'll be in touch to discuss how we can help.
If you would like to meet to discuss some aspect of your teaching that is not technology-related or is not covered by the other topics listed here, please complete the brief form below and Greg Reihman, our Center Director, will be in touch with you to arrange a time to meet. Examples of past conversations have included enhancing classroom discussion; enhancing lectures; enhancing presentation skills; effective use of active learning strategies; inclusive teaching; implementing group work/collaborative learning/project-based learning; designing effective assignments; assessing student learning; promoting academic integrity; classroom management and organization.
The CITL Digital Scholarship Team helps faculty bring new technologies to their scholarship and also offers course development assistance for instructors who want their students to create course-related digital video, documentary film, or multimedia projects.
CITL has created several innovative, flexible classroom spaces (https://citl.lehigh.edu/citl-spaces) that support creative and innovative forms of learning. We are interested in partnering with faculty who are looking to teach in these spaces and are willing to provide feedback on how different features help enhance their teaching. The maximum capacity for these classrooms is 36 students.
If you are seeking ways to improve access to (and lower the cost of) course materials by using Digital Texts, eBooks, Open Access materials, etc in their classes, Lehigh's Librarians and Instructional Technology Consultants can help you locate and select these materials, and provide guidance on distributing the electronic materials to your students.
