The Community for Instructional Transformation Initiative @ CAT (CITI @ CAT) is a year-long structured program to help a group of instructors implement changes to their course and evaluate the impact of the interventions. By bringing a group of instructors who are all implementing course changes, we hope that participants will form relationships, learn from each other and support the group’s efforts. We also hope to connect instructors to existing campus resources and learning communities they may not have known about before, and encourage continued involvement in those communities.
Instructors will be supported in considering how their interventions can improve equity and inclusivity in the classroom. Depending on your goals, your time commitment to CITI@CAT will vary! You do NOT need to overhaul the enitre coure (e.g., “flip” it). At the bottom of this page you will see an example of a candidate intervention. We expect participants to spend about 5 hours per quarter, which includes meetings as well as your preparation.
Participation in the CITI @ CAT can be highlighted in your dossier to be recognized for your next merit or promotion. Participants will receive $1,000 upon completion of program requirements.
Development of the current program was inspired by The Out of the Box initiative. Program materials will be developed and administration will be guided by project facilitators Courtney Clark, Melissa Paquette-Smith and Kumiko Haas, and supported by graduate student Megan Imundo, and members of the CAT community.
