The following programs are not sponsored by CITL, but do connect to teaching at IUB.
This program provides an opportunity, over the course of a full academic year, for faculty to engage in active learning practices with other Mosaic Fellows, as well as contribute towards the development of learning spaces across Indiana University. The program has four goals: Prepare faculty members to teach in active learning classrooms by exploring a variety of instructional strategies and technologies. Build a community of faculty members who collaborate to advance their own teaching and to mentor other colleagues exploring new pedagogies. Promote evidence-based teaching by encouraging instructors to study the impacts of new spaces and instructional approaches on student learning. Create faculty leaders who work together and with other stake holders to guide the development of new learning spaces across the university
Faculty members from across the university are invited to submit course development proposals that incorporate the IU Bicentennial in new courses or in revisions to existing classes. Students have expressed an interest in having options to learn about the university’s heritage through both new courses focused on the Bicentennial and embedded within their existing curriculum. These grants enable faculty to create and redesign courses and curricular experiences that include High Impact Practices and experiential learning opportunities.
These grants are intended to support course instructors and librarians in collaboratively integrating information literacy into a course or academic program. As a result of these projects, students will have opportunities throughout a course or program to develop their abilities to engage with and use sources critically in order to accomplish specific purposes within or beyond a given discipline. Course instructors will define the more particular meanings and applications of information literacy to their course or program.
This award program supports faculty members' efforts to enhance teaching of topics related to sustainability and environmental literacy at the IU Bloomington campus. It will support innovative approaches to instruction of complex, interdisciplinary topics at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Service-learning courses and those that involve application of principles of sustainability to the IU Bloomington campus are of particular interest.
