Lehigh's Faculty Development Program aims to foster excellence in teaching and learning by providing faculty with tools, development opportunities, and consultation services. We connect professors at Lehigh with resources on teaching and learning, and with information about faculty research. Check the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning Events Calendar for upcoming workshops, seminars, presentations, and lecture series.
We believe that learning can and should be engaging and interactive. Lehigh’s Instructional Technology team partners with faculty to leverage available and emerging technologies that promote active learning, collaboration, and students’ academic success. We consult on the design of instructional strategies, teaching innovation in academic programs, online or hybrid course development, and the integration of technology, adopting student-centered, active pedagogies that promote student engagement, inclusion, and deep learning. Let us know how we can help you promote student success through technology!
Writing Across the Curriculum
The Writing Across the Curriculum Program at Lehigh University is committed to promoting a campus-wide culture in which writing and communication in its many forms are central to learning in all disciplines. In this culture, communication and inquiry are vitally linked, restraints on learning imposed by traditional disciplinary boundaries are eased, and students and faculty are all part of one vibrant community, seeking and sharing knowledge and understanding together.
An increasing number of faculty are bringing new technologies to their scholarship and teaching. We work closely with instructors, offering assignment design consultations, production expertise, instruction for students, course development assistance, advice on equipment and software needs, and help developing rubrics. In addition to our regular semester collaborations, we provide intensive support in developing new ways for faculty to think about their research and its application to their courses. The Digital Scholarship Faculty Fellowship gives faculty an opportunity to devote time, energy, and funding for research and course development.
Online Learning and Distance Education
Lehigh has been committed to providing graduate programs and certificates to working professionals, and online summer courses for undergraduates, for over 20 years. Our programs emphasize academic excellence through internationally renowned faculty, a shared community of learners, and superior curriculum while maintaining the same level of quality of instruction and student service that is available to our on-campus students.

Classroom Technology Support & Learning Space Design
Classrooms in the 21st century are rarely simply fixed chairs and chalkboards. Lehigh’s classrooms contain a broad array of technologies, seating types, and room designs that support the diverse pedagogies of our faculty. CITL staff help design, implement, and support all registrar-scheduled classrooms and public computer sites. For more information about these spaces, visit Classroom Technology and Computing Sites.
