Call for Request for Proposals for CITL Collaboration on Spring 2018 or Summer 2018 Classes

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
  • Teaching in a CITL Classroom

 and other Flexible Learning Spaces
  • Teaching in Large Lecture Halls
  • Academic Uses of Visualization, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality
  • Course-related Digital Scholarship, Video, Film, or Multimedia Projects
  • Enhancing Teaching using Digital Tools
  • Instructional Videos or Modules
  • Developing a Fully Online Course
  • Research Computing Facilities for Teaching
  • Digital Texts or Open Access Material



Please don’t hesitate to contact Greg Reihman at grr3@lehigh.edu, if you have any questions.

Lehigh hosts the 2017 LVAIC Digital Tools Workshop

LVAIC will host a one-day conference at Lehigh University on Wednesday, May 24, 2017. This event will include a series of short "lightning round" talks (no more than 5 to 10-minutes each)and "hands-on workshops". The lightning round talks will focus on the pedagogical purposes of various digital tools that have been used to enhance teaching and learning (rather than on the mechanics of the tool itself). The "hands-on workshops" will give participants the opportunity to try new tools, discuss potential pedagogical benefits of using those tools, and strategize about integrating such tools into their courses.

Classes being taught in CITL Teaching Spaces

The CITL is pleased to be partnering with faculty on classes being taught in CITL Teaching Spaces during the Spring 2017 semester. Faculty teaching these classes will implement pedagogical approaches that take advantage of the unique features of these rooms, including collaborative learning, active learning, touch-screen display technologies, and videoconferencing with remote participants.

2017 Symposium on Teaching and Learning

The purpose of this annual event is to highlight new, interesting, and effective approaches to teaching and learning at Lehigh. We hope to disseminate good ideas, inspire others to try new approaches, and recognize the work of those who have met with success of one kind or another in their teaching. This year the Symposium was held on Wednesday, April 19th and Thursday, April 20th.  Watch the full-session recordings online.

Can Virtual Reality Improve Learning?

How can virtual reality experiences improve the writing fluency and academic achievement of special needs students?

Lehigh’s Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning purchased two high-end HTC Vive virtual reality systems, including one housed in a second-floor lab at the College of Education. Garrigan, who requested the purchase, will use the system in the proposed pilot project, but he also has been training students, faculty and community leaders in its use and testing its capabilities.
