The CIT training program is dedicated to providing USF faculty and staff with the necessary tools to increase their proficiency and understanding of technology in today's classroom and office.We are the starting point for USF faculty, staff and students interested in improving their skills and effectiveness using computers and instructional technology.
Classroom instruction in the CIT labs
Visit our training calendar, which is posted new every quarter, to see all training workshops offered on the topics of desktop applications and administrative systems in the Center for Instruction and Technology. Online class registration is required. Classes are hands-on and at different levels. All training materials are available online. The CIT labs are also available to USF instructors who want to hold classes or presentations where technology-based instruction is an integral part of the class. Questions or reservations about the CIT should be made to email@example.com.
Individual training is available to meet specific training needs where a class does not fulfill them. Fridays in the CIT are dedicated to individual tech training with faculty and staff and a CIT trainer. Interested persons can sign up for individual training through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate if you could fill out our Feedback Form so that we can improve the training curriculum.
Project-based training is geared toward individuals in a department or combination of departments that want to work as a team to learn new software. The request for a project-based training session should be made by a department supervisor to the Training Coordinator. The Training Coordinator will work with the department to design a training session that meets the needs of the group. Contact email@example.com with questions or comments.
