Center Programs

The Center for Instructional Innovation (CII) promotes inquiry into how people learn and shares the results of that inquiry with the GSU community. If you are interested in becoming more effective in your classroom we can help. If you are interested in adding some new techniques tailored for the students attending GSU today, we can help. And if you want to use your classroom as a site for scholarly research, we can help (and support) you there as well.

Participation in CII activities can be as casual as attending a one hour presentation or as complex as developing a research agenda.  Have a look at what we’re offering this year by clicking on the Faculty or Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) link on the left. If you don’t see something you want, contact the Center and let us know what you are interested in learning.

The CII also houses the  Critical Thinking through Writing (CTW) Initiative and the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Program. These two units are well established programs that teach faculty how to use writing intensive teaching strategies and critical thinking activities as companions to more traditional lecture-based approaches. The WAC program offers an annual workshop which pays attendees a stipend and, when budgets permit, provides funding and training for Teaching Assistants for faculty who decide after the workshop to employ Writing Intensive methods in their classes. The CTW Initiative is a critical part of GSU’s accreditation process. It has been underway since 2009 and involves every undergraduate major on campus. For more information, follow the link above or contact your department’s CTW Ambassador.
