Lehigh's Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL) fosters excellence and innovation in teaching, learning, and research by providing faculty and students with pedagogical development opportunities, teaching tools, course development guidance, classroom and instructional support, and consultation services.

Here is a video introduction on these tools –

The CITL is a vibrant place for conversations among faculty, staff, TRAC Fellows, and students. It is also a continually changing prototype space that sparks discussions about new possibilities for Lehigh’s learning spaces. 





Learning Management Platform


Content Creation

We have a site licenses for Panopto. You can access it through course site. Create videos to flip a course, provide overviews for homework solutions, lectures, etc. Consider recording mini lectures and then uploading them for students to watch. Studies show that posting recorded lectures does not diminish attendance and students really appreciate the opportunity to review lectures at their own pace.


Online Meetings

By default, everyone who logs into is provisioned for a ZOOM account and can record meetings to the cloud. However, you may also consider using Google Meet if you do not wish to record your meeting or host external participants, but would like to use live captioning.


Collaborative Writing

The Google assignments tool enables you to accept any google drive file type submissions, annotate, provide richer feedback using comment banks, promote collaboration, and give a grade that is associated with your course site grade book. There is an Originality Tool in Google Assignments that can be use to make sure students are citing work correctly.


Preventing Plagiarism

Turnitin is a tool that allows users to check for unoriginal text in electronic documents.  Documents, which can be submitted from within Course Site, will be compared against various search targets selected by the instructor (search target options include current and archived internet websites, databases of journals and periodicals, and Turnitin’s archive of previously submitted student work).  For advice on the use of Tunitin, see On the Effective and Appropriate Uses of 

Getting help

Please contact our helpdesk with any questions.

Be Prepared

  • Make sure all decisions to use technology support the learning objectives of that course. 
  • Do your homework, double check the software, directions or space you will be using the technology.
  • Where will students get help when you aren’t available? Make sure that the IT team or the Helpdesk know if you are doing something that requires students to install software.
