Celebration of Innovations in Teaching and Learning (CITL)



CITL is scheduled for Thursday, April 19 from 4-6 p.m. in the Reilly Room (Atherton Union), and will feature peer-reviewed posters, demonstrations, and displays presented by Butler faculty and academic staff. All Butler faculty and academic staff members are invited and encouraged to attend and hear from their peers about what they are doing to foster student learning at Butler, either through a teaching strategy, an instructional approach, a class assignment or project, a method of rubric-making, or other ways of measuring student engagement or learning. This year's event will also feature roundtable discussions, and participants from faculty-staff learning communities (FSLCs) will share their experiences. 

CITL is a great opportunity to discover new teaching ideas from your colleagues and to learn about the great work that is occurring across the university to ensure student success.
