Resources to support your teaching

At IU Bloomington, we offer extensive resources to help you develop and refine your teaching—whether you need help designing a course syllabus or applying for teaching-related funding.

Accommodations for religious observances

IU respects and protects the right of all students to observe their religious holidays. Instructors must make a reasonable accommodation when a student must miss an exam or other work because of a required religious observance.

See more about religious observance policies and the accommodation form.

Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning

The Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning (CITL) provides comprehensive services to support excellent teaching and learning.

Whether you need consultation on a class or course design, want to learn about innovations in pedagogy, or are looking for funding for a teaching initiative, CITL can help.
