Meet the Team

The team at the Center for Innovative Teaching & Learning (CITL) is here to support you by answering any questions you may have and providing the resources you need to succeed as a USF faculty member.  

Our goal is broad in scope: We work to collaborate with you and with other thought leaders in academia to innovate our methods of learning in the 21st century. But our approach is personal, and we work to support your individual growth as an instructor and as a learner, helping you build a career at USF that is rewarding for you and life-changing for your students.

Confidentiality at CITL

At CITL, we value you as a learner and a scholar. We encourage faculty to explore new and innovative ways to engage in their courses and scholarship and seek to provide an environment that promotes such activities. This is why all conversations and documents related to consultations and in-class observations are strictly confidential between CITL and the individual instructor. No information is passed on for departmental, merit or tenure review evaluation.
