CITT Summer Institute: Faculty Explore Web 2.0 - By Brenda Watkins, Instructional Designer

The CITT Faculty Professional Development Department hosted a 4-day faculty institute, Teaching and Learning in a Web 2.0 World, on August 16 - 19. Fourteen faculty members representing every campus participated in the Institute to learn teaching strategies for implementing Web 2.0 tools including blogs, wikis, Twitter, and Facebook into their classrooms. An abundance of resources were provided including templates, tutorials, sample strategies, web resources, and a copy of Learner-centered Assessment: Real Strategies for Today’s Students. During the Institute, participating faculty created blogs, wikis, Twitter feeds, and Facebook pages for their chosen course. As part of the Institute, participating faculty will implement a minimum of one of the Web 2.0 tools during the Fall, 2010 semester, survey students for feedback regarding learning value and ease of use, and reconvene in December to share their experiences. It is the goal of CITT Faculty Professional Development to collaborate with participating faculty members to facilitate future workshops and Institutes for Web 2.0 tools so that future endeavors become “by faculty, for faculty” initiatives.

CITT Website Gets a New Look

Over the past few months, CITT staff have been working with a team of faculty to help remodel our site. Special thanks to Barry Hubbard, Sharon Moran and Rich Senker for all of their hard work and suggestions.

The new site includes the same content as the old site, as well as a new feature, "CITT Interact." When launched, CITT Interact will function as a sounding board for faculty and staff to post questions and suggestions related to Technology, Assessment, Teaching and Learning Strategies and Online@HCC. Check this blog for more information on CITT Interact as it gets closer to going live.

Please visit our new site and let us know what you think. We would love to hear your input!
