The Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning opens on both the TUC and TUN campuses

I am pleased to announce the beginning of the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning (CILT) on both the Touro University California and Touro University Nevada campuses.

CILT was conceptualized in response to recommendations made during the last WASC accreditation visit,  and was a critical element in the TUC 5-Year Strategic Action Plan. CILT will provide support for faculty who want to improve the quality of their pedagogy  and increase student learning. As the newly appointed Director of CILT, I am currently meeting with campus administrators and faculty to best determine the needs on each campus, as well as how to best support faculty in their quests to improve their teaching. A faculty advisory committee from each campus with assist in providing direction for the Centers. In the meantime, I am happy to meet with any interested faculty. Please contact me by email at:
