Founded in 2017, the Center for Teaching Innovation (CTI) supports Cornell University teaching community members, from teaching assistants and postdoctoral fellows, to lecturers, to professors, with a full complement of individualized services, programs, institutes, and campus-wide initiatives. We do this through confidential developmental consultations across the academic career span, roles, and disciplines. In addition to instructors, we team with departments, schools and colleges, and related units to create and sustain multicultural, rigorous, and vibrant learning environments. To catalyze academic innovation, our team brings a deep knowledge of educational research on teaching, learning, and technologies along with a spirit of curiosity and collaboration. The CTI reports to Julia Thom-Levy, vice provost for academic innovation and professor in physics.
A Message from the Executive Director
We promise an enlivening 2018-2019 academic year for teaching and learning at Cornell. The CTI is a campus-wide hub for all instructors interested in exploring and applying the emerging research and best practices on how people learn. To this end, we are excited to develop a wide range of new initiatives central to the culture for teaching and learning. These efforts include the:
- transition to Canvas, Cornell’s new learning management system.
- Individual Innovation Grant program for large scale course design projects.
- expansion of the Active Learning Initiative.
- launch of Teaching and Learning in the Diverse Classroom, an online course for all Cornell instructors.
As we continue to explore the full potential of the new CTI, we welcome your feedback. We look forward most to supporting your education development goals.
All best wishes,
Mathew L. Ouellett, Executive Director
