The Faculty Instructional Technology Summer Institute (FITSI) is a hands-on learning experience that takes place each year on the Durham campus. A limited number of faculty and instructors in full-time, permanent teaching positions are chosen to participate.
FITSI will provide time to investigate common instructional challenges and solutions
FITSI faculty explore technologies that support teaching and learning
Tuesday, June 9th through Thursday, June 11th, 2015
and Tuesday, January 12, 2016
FITSI is designed for faculty who have used technology in their teaching in the past, but would like to do more. The program includes presentations from leaders in the field of Instructional Technology, as well as workshops targeted on technology tools that support teaching.
This year, FITSI will see some changes in format. The Summer event will be shorter to allow for other opportunities to network during the academic year, culminating in a Winter event on January 12, 2016. During the Summer event, participants will draft a teaching plan which will be advanced in the Fall semester. At the Winter event, participants will share their experiences and lessons learned.
