FITI Grants

The Faculty Instructional Technology Integration (FITI) is offered to full-time faculty each spring. This grant aims to accomplish three main goals:

  • Encourage the pedagogically sound use of technology in student learning.
  • Encourage faculty to utilize a collaborative group of technologists, librarians and the CAJ institute as a development team.
  • Increase technological literacy of the faculty with regard to teaching and learning.

Faculty who are awarded a grant are assigned a team consisting of an instructional technologist, librarian, and the Director of the CAJ Institute to accomplish the goals of the grant. Following the implementation of the grant, faculty will share their experiences, lessons learned, and results at a Professor to Professor lunch.
