CITL: New Faculty Orientation 2018

Date & Time: Monday, August 20 to Tuesday, August 21, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm

Audience: Faculty

This is a 2-day event held for new faculty. It will be held on the following dates:

Monday, August 20th 8:30 am to 4:00 pm
Tuesday, August 21st 8:30 am to 5:30 pm

This event is an opportunity for you to meet some of your new colleagues, learn more about the teaching and research cultures at Lehigh, and discover what support and mentoring services are available to you on campus. Our main goal is to provide new faculty with helpful information (without overwhelming them) and to connect them with the people who are here to help them get started successfully. 

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.


CITL: Get ready for LUapps!

Date & Time: Tuesday, June 12, 12:00 pm

Presenters: Naazer Ashraf

Audience: Community Members, Faculty, Staff, Students, Graduate Students

Get ready to try LUapps! LTS will soon begin pilot testing a new service that allows you to access software applications anytime, anywhere, and on any device! LUapps simplifies access to 30+ software titles from any computing device--laptops, tablets, desktops, and smartphones. All you need is an Internet connection. The new service will provide a more consistent user experience between Mac, Windows, and other devices. LTS will begin piloting LUapps in Summer 2018, with full deployment to campus expected by Fall 2018. We are looking to work with faculty that use the software in their teaching or assign student projects that require specific software applications. This session will also be offered online, here is the link:

Lunch will be provided.

CITL: Reacting to the Past

Date & Time: Tuesday, April 3, 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm

Location: EWFM 520

Presenters: Jason Slipp

Audience: Faculty, Staff, Graduate Students

This workshop will introduce Reacting to the Past and have participants play a game with Q and A after. Reacting To The Past (RTTP), it is a robust pedagogy developed out of Barnard College by Historian Mark Carnes.  Through subversive role play, RTTP promotes imagination, inquiry, and engagement as foundational features of teaching and learning across all disciplines in higher education.  In addition to being student-centered, the RTTP pedagogy consists of instructional undergirding that promote critical thinking, writing and presentation skills, argumentation, collaboration, and more. The pedagogy has been implemented at over 500 colleges and universities and is sustained by a large consortium (of which Lehigh is now a member) that develops two multiple annual conferences, administers grants, and offers consulting services. If you have been searching for ways to enhance your teaching and your students' learning, RTTP could be a perfect fit.
