We celebrate the many instructors who went above and beyond their regular teaching duties to earn a CITL teaching certificate. These teachers engaged in many activities that may include: teaching students at Illinois, having their teaching observed by a mentor, collecting and responding to student feedback on their teaching, exploring the literature on teaching & learning, attending teaching & learning workshops, creating original teaching & learning work, and engaging in reflective practices.
The Certificate in Foundations of Teaching provides an opportunity for those with less than two semesters of classroom teaching experience to explore teaching and become better prepared for the responsibilities of an academic setting.
The Graduate Teacher Certificate is designed to help TAs develop teaching skills and reflective practice by providing them with opportunities to document their teaching experience, professional development, and constructive use of student feedback.
The Teacher Scholar Certificate encourages instructors to become scholars of teaching by providing a structured process for the exploration of pedagogy from a discipline-based perspective.
The Certificate in Technology-Enhanced Teaching encourages instructors to explore educational technologies and to practice and assess technology-enhanced teaching.
CITL's Master Course in Online Teaching (MCOT) is a deep dive into online teaching strategies that asks participants to go further than ever before in applying evidence-based teaching to their online practice. Participants work in a small cohort to explore course design, learning communities, best teaching practices, and student motivation by engaging with resources from online teaching experts here at Illinois and around the world. The relationship of these topics to issues of accessibility, technology, and online teaching standards are examined throughout the course.
The Citizen Scholar Certificate encourages instructors to explore and participate in the scholarship of engagement and provides opportunities for instructors to contribute to a community of practice that supports service-learning pedagogy and civic engagement.

A Note from CITL:
We appreciate the friends, family members, and university colleagues who are sharing in our celebration of the certificate recipients. We would also like to acknowledge the many individuals who support the development of teaching excellence on campus. Their contributions include assisting in the pre-semester training of TAs, mentoring TAs in their teaching responsibilities, and guiding TAs through the certificate process.
