The Faculty Instructional Technology Summer Institute (FITSI) is a weeklong, 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 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. Past workshops have focused on using technology to:
- Promote active learning
- Provide useful and timely feedback
- Digitize course materials
- Promote collaboration
- Encourage critical thought
- Enhance student engagement
- Deliver course content online
