The Centre for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL) leads the delivery of Memorial University of Newfoundland's online education offerings, the provision of educator development, and the use of educational technologies in teaching and learning both online and on campus. Through its activities CITL serves students 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 Department 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.
