The International Teaching Learning Cooperative Network was created to bring faculty members and future faculty members together to advance student learning. At present, this is primarily accomplished by facilitating and presenting customized workshops, the dissemination of information from contributing authors through The Scholarly Teacher Blog, the creation of educational tools, and directing and coordinating Lilly Conferences on College and University Teaching.
At ITLC, we take pride in the services and products we offer. We value our clients and look forward to developing long-term relationships with them as they strive to reach their professional goals. Likewise, we value our employees for their ongoing contributions to ITLC as well as for their individual aspirations and commitments.
