CITL's Innovation Spaces in the Armory were designed to foster discovery, innovation, and problem solving to help transform learning across campus. Whether you're faculty looking to reinvent your course, a student group interested in sharing your expertise, or an individual exploring new technologies - our spaces are open to all. 

The Innovation Spaces include the Innovation Studio, a 25 seat interactive, visualization space; the TechHub, a technology exploration and experimentation space; the Virtual Reality Lab, for research and design of immersive educational experiences; and the Innovation Classroom, a one-of-a-kind, mixed-seating iFlex classroom for up to 45 students.

Stop by the CITL Innovation Spaces today to explore an emerging technology, try out the interactive video wall, tour a new flexible classroom, or immerse yourself in a virtual experience.

Get involved

The CITL Innovation Spaces offer unique opportunities for everyone to get involved in transforming teaching and learning at the University of Illinois. Here are just a few ideas.

Faculty: Work with our consultants to explore an emerging technology or re-imagine your teaching. Share your passion in our Teaching Innovations Seminar Series. Partner with us on project-based activities or let CITL serve as your client for real-world learning opportunities. Schedule your course or class session in one of our new CITL Innovation Spaces.

Students: Explore the latest technologies in our hands-on, interactive exhibits. Stop by to try a virtual reality experience. Collaborate with your teammates on project-based work in a high-tech ideation space. Practice your presentation skills at open mic night or share your expertise through student led workshops.

Campus Units: Reach more students with a sponsored exhibit in the TechHub. Join the consortium of open-access spaces on campus for cross promotion and referrals.

Corporate Partners: Increase exposure to your latest products through a featured exhibit or in-kind donation. Sponsor a showcase event to highlight the educational impact of your products and services. Work with us to gather student input and feedback.
