CIT Tech Intensives

This May/June, the CIT is sponsoring a three-day tech intensive program to introduce instructional technologies to full-time and adjunct faculty. The goal of program is to provide an opportunity for faculty to learn about technologies that may address an instructional challenge experienced in one or more courses.

Twenty faculty will be selected. Participants will receive an iPad Air (16 GB) or iPad mini (32 GB) in exchange for their participation. Faculty participants agree to attend three consecutive days of training, 10am-3pm, May 26-28 OR June 2-4, as well as lunchtime gatherings in August and December (luncheon dates to be determined in May/June). Workshop and luncheon participation is mandatory. Failure to attend one workshop or luncheon warrants the return of the iPad to the CIT. Completion of the program transfers ownership of the iPad to the faculty member.

  • Introduction to the iPad
  • Apps for productivity
  • Apps for the classroom
  • Introducing the Flipped Classroom
