FITT 2015 Schedule

Award winners are expected to attend the pre-summer meeting on May 18 and the end-of-summer meeting on August 25, as well as a week-long “Guided Exploration” on designing hybrid courses scheduled for June 1 – 4.

In addition to these meetings, we will organize “cookies and chat” meetings approximately every two weeks throughout the summer, at which award winners will share their work in progress and get feedback from colleagues, faculty mentors, and educational technologists. Award winners are expected to share their work during at least one of these meetings  and are welcome to attend as often as they would like.
