If you would like to work with Lehigh's Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL) on a class you are teaching in spring or summer 2018, please submit a brief proposal by Friday, December 15th, 2017. Someone from the Center will be in touch with you before winter break or early in the new year.
Proposals that require a substantial investment of faculty time (e.g., a significant course redesign, integration of an innovative project into the course, adoption of a wholly new teaching approach, etc.) may qualify for a CITL Faculty Fellowship Course Development Grant of up to $500. Grant recipients will work closely with CITL consultants throughout the project and will present at the 2018 Symposium on Teaching and Learning or at another CITL event.
Here are some areas in which we have worked together with faculty in the past (additional details can be found in the 'Consulting' section of the CITL site):
- Consultation about General Teaching and Learning Topics
- Consultation on Writing, Research, and Inquiry Projects
- Inclusive Teaching, Active Learning, or Project-based Courses

Lehigh's highly anticipated Visualization Lab opens later this month in E.W. Fairchild-Martindale Library. It features several innovative visualization tools, including a MultiTaction Curved iWall for the collaborative investigation of digital information at large scale. In addition, the Lab is outfitted with an HTC VIVE system, which provides users with an immersive virtual reality experience.
The Visualization Lab is open to faculty, students, and staff following a brief series of required training sessions with a member of the Visualization Lab Support Team. It has been envisioned as a collaborative space that can effortlessly shift from the examination of visual data on a vast pixel canvas to the evaluation of the pedagogical value of virtual reality environments--a place to explore; a place to create; a place to solve.
The Lab's core visualization technologies include:
