Our Professional Learning Community

The Cross-campus Teaching Innovations Group (CTIG) began in 2015 as an informal lunch gathering of a few UCLA practitioners and education leaders from different disciplines who came together to talk about ongoing teaching initiatives on campus. Through our conversations, we explored possibilities for collaboration in unique, creative, and cross-disciplinary ways. As of 2018, these informal interactions among peers have blossomed into a collaborative community of over 35 educational leaders representing diverse and innovative areas across campus.
