The Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning

Supporting Engaged and Transformative Learning.

Our Mission

The CITL furthers the mission of Sofia University by helping faculty, staff, students, and alumni become engaged leaders and learners while nurturing a community of practice in transpersonal studies. 

Under the Directorship of John Elfers, PhD, and in conjunction with the Dissertation Office, the CITL hopes to accomplish its mission by sponsoring workshops, in-service trainings in transformative education, providing direct support for innovative theoretical and applied research, and maintaining a repository of media and resources. It is our hope that the CITL will become the central hub for innovation in teaching and learning at Sofia.
