A "Welcome Message"

Greetings from the Center for Innovative Teaching and Engaged Learning (CITEL) at Reinhardt University. CITEL faculty are working hard to deliver on our mission to foster a campus culture that values collaboration and interaction among teachers and students in order to nurture innovation in the practice of teaching and to emphasize the role of engagement in learning, at Reinhardt University and in its surrounding communities.

CITEL provides in-person and online workshops, resources for course planning and instructional design, white papers on innovative instructional practices, and consultation services. CITEL was established by a generous grant from the Goizueta Foundation, and manages internal grants made possible by these funds. Learn more about Faculty-Student HIP grants, Teaching and Learning grants, and Program grants. CITEL also coordinates the Reinhardt University QEP, “Where in the World RU Going?”

CITEL celebrates the innovations of the Reinhardt faculty and other area secondary and post-secondary educators through the Academic Conversations Podcast, and annually recognizes both professors and students through the Innovative Teaching Award, the Adjunct Teaching Award, and the Engaged Learner Award.

We are excited to see our Center evolve into a hub of conversation centering around innovative teaching practices that engender engaged student learning. We hope that you will join us and be a part of our invigorating discussions.
