The Centre for lnnovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL) provides teaching and learning support to Memorial University of Newfoundland across all Campuses and online. CITL leads the delivery of online courses and programs, professional development for educators, and the use of educational media and technologies for teaching and learning. The Centre also partners with internal and external individuals and groups to meet education-related goals, facilitate research, and provide the wider community with access to University events and opportunities.

Through its activities CITL serves students and educators on all of the University’s Campuses, and connects students across the Province, Country and around the world who have limited educational opportunities, or who seek flexibility in education delivery. The Centre also enhances, promotes and supports an e-learning vision throughout the Institution. CITL provides Faculties and Schools with the e-learning expertise and knowledge needed to provide an engaging and responsive learning environment for on campus and online courses. A Memorandum of Understanding with Newfoundland and Labrador English School District's Centre for Distance Learning and Innovation (CDLI), which delivers distance education to K-12 students, allows CITL to share knowledge and information and prepare the incoming university student for online learning.
