Details about the bi-annual call:
Every semester, the CITL issues a Call for Request for Support inviting faculty who would like to partner with us in any of the following course- or teaching-related areas to fill out a brief online request form. After you submit your request (online at http://lehigh.edu/go/CITLrequest), someone from the Center will be in touch with you. So that we have time to work together in preparation for your summer or fall course, we ask that you submit your request as soon as possible, by Thursday April 21st, 2016.
Enhancing Instruction using Online Tools: Would you like your students to engage more productively in coursework 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 Multimedia Projects: Are you planning to have students produce video, documentary, podcast, or website projects as part of a summer or fall 2016 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 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.
Request a Consultation with the Director of the Writing Across the Curriculum Program Are you interested in a conversation on the use of writing to promote learning in your classes, on designing writing assignments, on providing effective feedback on student work, on simplifying the process of collecting, reviewing, and returning student writing?
Request for a Consultation on Integrating Digital Texts or Open Access Material into Coursework Many Lehigh faculty 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.
Teaching a Fully Online Course: Are you teaching a fully online course for the first time or looking for help in enhancing an existing online course? 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 https://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.
