Bhutan's First and Only A+ Accredited Institution      Inspiring Education in Bhutan

CITL Trainings and Workshops are designed to develop the teaching capability of new faculty members with limited prior teaching experience and all those seeking to refresh and enhance teaching skills. The workshops are also open to other faculty members nominated in discussion with the Programme Leaders. All faculty members can choose their preferred training topics to attend and meet the minimum requirements for continuous professional development.

Most CITL trainings will be conducted during the working Saturdays, with training durations ranging from 2-3 contact hours with at least 1-2 hours of follow-up meetings after 1 or 2 months. All CITL trainings will be 3 CPD points; for those volunteering to facilitate in-house training, these will be 6 points. Training will be designed to be as hands-on as possible, and a feedback and reflection exercise will be carried out as a part of the post-training follow-up. Normally, a maximum of 20 participants will be taken for each workshop.

The following are some of the trainings available for Spring 2022:
