FIT Faculty Development

Mission

With the goal of improving teaching and student learning through professional development, the FIT Faculty Development Program, anchored by the Center for Excellence in Teaching (CET) assists and supports faculty in the development, use and assessment of effective instructional and curricular strategies. The Faculty Development program provides support for innovative, educational exploration across the curriculum, and seeks to foster a community of teaching practice. CET also works with faculty to explore new academic technologies and integrate pedagogically sound technology into the classroom.

"You cannot teach today the same way you did yesterday to prepare students for tomorrow." John Dewey

Center for Excellence in Teaching

The Center for Excellence in Teaching (CET) was established in late 2001 to serve college-wide faculty pedagogical interests and needs. It provides instructional support to faculty as they work to innovate teaching methodologies. The CET also facilitates the integration of technology into the curriculum and fosters conversations among faculty about effective teaching and learning.
