The CIT awards honor faculty or staff who has demonstrated excellent use of technology in education. Recipients have supported the development of teaching and learning, contributing to the overall quality of the USF learning environment.
Innovation Award - Eugene Muscat, School of Business
The Innovation Award recognize overall excellence and innovative use of technology in teaching and learning. This year’s recipient, from the School of Business & Management, has been with USF for 33 years. This candidate has overcome the limitations of time and geography to provide the Family Business curriculum developed here at USF to our sister Jesuit schools and to USF students who cannot enroll in our on-campus course. He has done this through use of Blackboard, electronic discussion boards, and video lectures streamed over the Internet.
Faculty Award - Trey Cosgriff, School of Education
The Faculty Award recognizes overall outstanding use of technology in the classroom or online. This year’s recipient, from the School of Education, has been with USF for 7 years. As his students affirm, he masterfully integrates curriculum with meaningful, hands-on computer lab experiences for USF Education graduate students teaching local junior high school students. In this way, his Authentic Educational Technology course creates an environment where USF students combine theory and practice.
