The Center for Innovation in Teaching & Research supports faculty in research planning, collaboration, and innovation through workshops, guest lectures, collaborative projects with WIU research support offices, and an annual Faculty Research Symposium.
Research Collaboration Database
The Research Collaboration Database is designed to help faculty, staff and students locate researchers from across campus with similar research interests. The hope is to foster collaborative working relationships. Faculty and staff can share their own activities and become part of the community that recognizes the benefits of collaborative research.
Consultation and Referrals
Faculty are encouraged to contact CITR when exploring a new research topic or looking for research collaboration opportunities. CITR organizes networking events and programs to assist in research collaboration across campus with the assistance of University Libraries, the Office of Sponsored Projects, the Illinois Institute for Rural Affairs, and other research-related offices. Call 309/298-2434 for more information.
Annual Faculty Research Symposium
During the Fall Semester, CITR sponsors the one-day Faculty Research Symposium. The symposium offers new and experienced faculty an opportunity to share their research "quests" with other WIU faculty and students and to engage in research-related dialogue. Proposals are peer-reviewed and "best in track" travel stipends are provided to outstanding proposals.
Research and Assessment Workshops
Throughout the year CITR schedules workshops, lectures, and brown bags on research and assessment topics such as SPSS, use of library databases, information searching, authentic assessment techniques, program evaluation, and other topics. Suggestions for research-related workshops and programming are always welcome through the CITR Feedback Form.
