The Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning (CITL) is partnering with the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs (VPFAA) and the Faculty Academy on Excellence in Teaching (FACET) to offer the annual Day on Professional Development for Non-Tenure Track Faculty.

We encourage all non-tenure track (lecturers, clinical faculty, professors of practice, academic specialists, research scientists, adjuncts) and others who have teaching roles at Indiana University to attend. Plenary sessions and workshops facilitated by non-tenure track faculty will focus on teaching, service and research in support of teaching, and career development.
