CTI strives to sustain inclusive learning environments where students feel a sense of belongingness and can thrive.
CTI supports instructors in creating and sustaining student-centered teaching practices by grounding our efforts in the research on learning and best practices in teaching. Five key synergistic and often interdependent domains guide our resources and services: innovation, inclusive teaching, assessment, evidence-based learning strategies, and instructional technology.
Diversity Workshops & Institutes
Faculty Institute for Diversity
The Faculty Institute for Diversity is an opportunity for instructors to explore diversity among students, teaching practices, and course design for greater inclusion.
Inclusive Teaching Institute
The Inclusive Teaching Institute for Graduate students and Postdocs is a two-day retreat aimed at graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are committed to teaching across abilities and incorporating various experiences while ensuring that the classroom space is a place for all to learn without hesitation or prejudice.
Teaching & Learning in the Diverse Classroom Online Course
This fall the CTI will pilot the online course, Teaching & Learning in the Diverse Classroom. This course is open to any Cornell instructor, with all disciplines and any level of diversity expertise welcome.
Universal Design for Learning
Universal design for learning is a teaching approach that works to accommodate the needs and abilities of all learners and eliminates unnecessary hurdles in the learning process.
Global learning is a critical analysis of and engagement with complex, interdependent global systems and legacies (such as natural, physical, social, cultural, economic, and political) and their implications for people’s lives and the earth’s sustainability.
