FITSI 2019

Tuesday, June 11th through Thursday, June 13th, 2019

and Tuesday, January 7, 2020

2019 is the 18th Annual FITSI event.
The theme is, “Promoting Student Success: Access and Engagement in Design and Technology”.  We'll explore ways to enhance student access and 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 11-13, 2019 and on January 7, 2020
  • Integrate at least one new teaching strategy into a course during Fall of 2019
  • 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.
