Faculty Innovations in Teaching with Technology (FITT)
Faculty Innovations in Teaching with Technology (FITT) is a selective program for faculty seeking to improve teaching and learning by incorporating technology in their classes. The program supports innovative ways of thinking about teaching and learning with technology: creative pedagogical approaches to using familiar technologies (such as Blackboard) and the inclusion of less familiar technologies that enable students to learn in new ways (e.g., wikis, podcasts, ePortfolios, collaborative writing tools, and mobile technologies).
Since it was established in the summer of 2008, this popular program has received more than 200 applications and more than 70 faculty members representing a wide range of disciplines have been selected to participate. Selected applicants receive a stipend and support from an educational technologist, other ICIT staff, and faculty fellows.
More information about this initiative can be found on the FITT website.
