New faculty may wish to review the following documents in the Resources section of the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning website: a course design worksheet, a syllabus template, some guidance on syllabus development, resources on active learning and inclusive teaching, and other pedagogical resources.  Please also browse around on the  CITL website to get a sense of the kinds of programs and support we offer.
