CITL is featured in the University's News Center piece about Alumni Weekend 2019:
Another highlight was an eye-opening talk about “Radical Learning—The Heart of the UC Santa Cruz Experience.” Jody Greene, professor of literature, feminist studies, and history of consciousness, and director of the Center for Innovations in Teaching and Learning (CITL), led a team of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates about ways to improve conditions in which students can learn.
Greene introduced an array of speakers—including faculty as well as a group of eloquent and enthusiastic student interns with CITL—who addressed the importance of understanding student strengths for learning and how faculty and staff can better support students including first-gen learners.
“We think what is going on at UC Santa Cruz is a renaissance,” said UC Santa Cruz Foundation Distinguished Professor of Psychology Barbara Rogoff, who is a CITL senior faculty fellow. “We are a model for making higher education much more accessible for learners.”
