The Faculty Instructional Technology Summer Institute (FITSI) is a hands-on learning experience that takes place each year on the Durham campus. Applications are open to faculty, instructors and graduate students.
FITSI will provide time to investigate common instructional challenges and solutions
FITSI faculty explore technologies that support teaching and learning
Tuesday, June 13th through Thursday, June 15th, 2017
and Tuesday, January 9, 2018
2017 is the 16th Annual FITSI event. The theme is, "Engaging Students with Technology-Enhanced Learning." We'll explore ways to enhance student engagement with new pedagogies and technologies while helping you address a specific instructional challenge.
Attendance at all FITSI events is expected. By applying to participate, you agree to the following:
Attend FITSI on June 13-15, 2017 and on January 9, 2018
Integrate at least one new teaching strategy into a course during Fall of 2017
Work with Academic Technology to assess instructional technology needs in your school or college
Promote the benefits of integrating technology by speaking with your colleagues
FITSI is designed for faculty who have used technology in their teaching in the past, but would like to do more. The program will include presentations from leaders in the field of Instructional Technology, as well as workshops targeted on technology tools that support teaching.
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.
