Training and Orientation

The Center For Innovative Teaching and Learning (CITL), in collaboration with other departments on campus, conducts faculty training and orientation programs throughout the year. Announcements are emailed to faculty in advance of each event, in addition to being advertised on this web site. In addition, the CITL works with other campus offices to facilitate New Faculty Orientation each August. Our flagship event is Our Turn, a time in which faculty and staff voluntarily offer training sessions to their peers in a variety of academic and skill areas.

Our Turn training session

The main Our Turn event is held the second week in May, with smaller-scale events offered in August and January. The 2015 dates will be:

January Our Turn: 1/13 - 1/15
May Our Turn: 5/11 - 5/14
August Our Turn: 8/18 - 8/20
New Faculty Orientation: 8/10 - 8/13

Faculty, staff, and graduate students can sign up for sessions when they are offered using an online registration system. And, check out some of our photos on Flickr from past Our Turn training sessions.
