Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning

We support effective and innovative teaching in pursuit of transformative learning experiences.

Flexible Teaching Guides and Support 

The Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning (CITL) supports NIU faculty as they design and develop courses that can be successful in any mode of delivery. We are committed to helping you create the most resilient, effective courses possible. We are calling this effort “flexible teaching,” and have developed a new resource at to support the NIU teaching community.

Learn more about the guiding principles of Flexible Teaching and how it differs from the emergency remote teaching effort undertaken this spring.

We invite you to review Flexible Teaching blueprints for ideas of what Flexible Teaching could look like in your course as well as the three Flexible Teaching guides that are currently available: Course Design, Course Materials and Course Delivery.

Looking for more information or support? Contact CITL staff by phone or text 815-797-2477, email, or schedule an appointment with a member of our team. We look forward to serving you!
