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 14th through Thursday, June 16th, 2016
and Tuesday, January 10, 2017
2016 is the 15th Annual FITSI event. The theme is "Student Engagement." 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 14-16, 2016 and on January 10, 2017
Integrate at least one new teaching strategy into a course during Fall of 2016
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.
