The IUPUI Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) supports faculty using a collaborative model to advance teaching excellence. Their wide variety of educational offerings and modalities make it easy for you to find what works best for you. The consultants help you to excel in the implementation of innovative teaching and learning strategies by providing consultations, equipment loans, classroom observations, and focus group facilitation.

Within the school, the instructional designer works with faculty to design new courses or re-tool existing ones by implementing active learning techniques, evaluation methodologies, and new curricula. Existing online courses are supported by the online course coordinator who is an expert in the learning management system used at Indiana University, Canvas, and works as the second level of support in the three-tiered support model implemented within the school. He is also a liaison with University Information Technology Services (UITS) for more advanced issues. Faculty wanting to learn more about audio- and videoconferencing including Kaltura and Zoom can work with the school's technology coordinator.
The Office of Research Support (ORS) supports both faculty and student researchers. You will work collaboratively with ORS staff to move projects through grant application and development, mock reviews, and the submission process. The Office also provides support for researchers through faculty research groups, think tanks, and individual faculty consultations. After external funding has been awarded, the Office links investigators with school, campus, and university resources such as the Office of Research Administration, financial services, human resources, and other units to support project implementation. Other services provided by ORS include statistical consultation, data management, and editing.
A dedicated librarian from University Library supports faculty, students, and staff at the school with research needs. You may contact the librarian directly for assistance, explore the plethora of available resources, or request a visit to your classroom – virtual or physical.
