THE MISSION
CIETL is committed to the college’s core mission
of helping all our students move successfully
through their academic plan, including basic
skills, transfer, and career/technical education
courses. CIETL does this by piloting, evaluating,
and supporting innovative teaching and learning
practices that encourage collaboration and
community building and increase the retention,
success, and persistence rates of our students.
CIETL promotes sharing of this scholarship of
teaching and learning among faculty here and
elsewhere.
Create a physical and virtual
space for inquiry and
excellence in teaching,
learning, and program
planning.

FOCUSED INQUIRY NETWORK (FIN)
The Focused Inquiry Networks are informal,
dynamic groups of faculty and staff (and
sometimes others) at a community college
whose members learn together about their
professional practice by conducting an
inquiry about a topic of importance to them.
The inquiry steps are:
(1) design the inquiry
(2) collect data
(3) make meaning and shape practice
(4) share the information with the college
community.
