The President’s Initiative for Faculty Innovations in Teaching with Technology
Deadline extended to March 9
What is FITT?
Faculty Innovations in Teaching with Technology (FITT) is a selective program for faculty seeking to enhance student learning by developing innovative approaches to teaching that include the use of technology. The FITT program supports creative pedagogical approaches to familiar technologies (such as Blackboard), the exploration of less familiar technologies that enable students to learn in new ways, and the development of fully online courses. FITT award winners have successfully enriched courses, engaged students, and innovated within and beyond the classroom.
FITT cultivates a vibrant community of faculty who are committed to sharing their innovations and experiences with colleagues. By fostering a culture of reflection on teaching, FITT encourages faculty to contribute to the scholarship of teaching and learning.
FITT 2015 Areas of Focus
This year, we are combining “traditional FITT” and “FITT Online” into one call for proposals with three tracks, each with its own requirements, professional development activities, and application form. Hunter faculty are invited to submit proposals for one of the following tracks:
Design and pilot an innovative way of enhancing your classes with technology.
Design and teach a hybrid course, in which 33% – 80% of the class sessions are replaced by online activities or virtual meetings.
Design and teach a fully online course.
