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.
