Support for Teaching and Learning

Well known for their dedication to education, IU Bloomington faculty work as hard in the classroom as they do in research settings.

They provide engaging classroom, laboratory, and studio experiences for their students, and serve as mentors for beginning and advanced learners.

A variety of service and technology units offer support for teaching and learning endeavors on the Bloomington campus, from consultation in course design and assessment at the individual or departmental level for instructors, to tutoring and study skills classes for students.

Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning (CITL)
CITL provides instructional support for instructors of all levels at IU Bloomington—from individual consultations with teachers to support for high-profile educational initiatives that impact the entire campus. CITL joins together the personnel and programs of these former units to provide a comprehensive approach to instructional support: Campus Instructional Consulting, the Campus Writing Program, the Office of Service-Learning, and the Teaching and Learning Technologies Center.
