Welcome to Center for Innovative Pedagogy

Books clubs, digital storytelling, and course designs, oh my! Check out our summer offerings.

Have you seen the 2015-16 Annual Report for the CIP?

During our faculty retreat in the summer of 2010, Kenyon faculty said that they want to talk more about teaching and learning. They used phrases like "mission critical" to describe the formal commitment of time and resources to their ongoing development as teachers. The Center for Innovative Pedagogy is a response to that desire. 


The CIP facilitates faculty conversations about teaching.  Through the resources of the center, Kenyon faculty augment their knowledge of effective pedagogies. The CIP staff assist faculty in implementing teaching and learning strategies in the classroom. The staff also assist faculty with investigating and evaluating pedagogical practices.

  • Research Services - CIP staff can assist your research into teaching tools, narrowing down the field of possible solutions to just the ones which meet your goals best.
  • Workshops and Support - The Instructional Technologists in the CIP will continue to provide individual support to faculty members and students working with tools like Moodle, SPSS, and Photoshop. We can also set up workshops for groups of faculty, if you would like to look at a new technology together.
  • Discussion - through discussions, meetings, and the CIP website, we can help you trumpet your department's successes, and look for colleagues with similar concerns. If there's a topic which you would like to discuss with other faculty members, let us know! CIP is happy to handle the logistics to make the meeting happen.
  • The Essentials Project - the Center provides logistical support to the investigation of essential intellectual skills across and throughout the Kenyon curriculum

The Center for Innovative Pedagogy is supported in part by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
