FITís Office of Faculty and Academic Program Support proudly supports the work of curriculum administration, faculty development through the Center for Excellence in Teaching , The Career and Internship Center, Faculty Services, and The Office of Online Learning and Academic Technologies.
Exciting new projects from Academic Affairs include:
- Beginning in Fall 2015, curricular actions will be initiated using the online Course Inventory Management (CIM) system. CIM will replace the current paper process.

- For information on how to write Student Learning Outcomes, see this video created by the Center for Excellence in Teaching (CET).
- FIT has established Articulation Agreements with a number of schools. For more information on which schools have an agreement with FIT, visit the Registrar's office.
- The Center for Excellence in Teaching (CET) has released a number of videos and other recorded resources for faculty use. Some examples include recordings of student-faculty roundtables, a series of master teaching videos in the classroom, presentations and panels. For a detailed list of videos and resources, visit the CET website.
- The College Wide Curriculum Committee has developed suggested guidelines
for submission of interdisciplinary courses. Experimental interdisciplinary courses will be assessed at the
conclusion of each semester in which the courses are offered. A plan
for how these pilot courses will be assessed is to be developed by the
authoring faculty and shared with Academic Affairs and the UCE at the
beginning of each semester. Assessments should be linked to units of
study, their products and the manner in which the product (creativity)
is to be presented.
Build your rubric to:
- Assess how the proposed course integrated insights from multiple discipline/perspectives.
- Assess how the course helped students integrate multiple perspectives to develop a fuller understanding of the content.
- Assess how the course's learning outcomes made explicit the interdisciplinary focus of the course and to what extent students (and teachers) were able to achieve learning outcomes.
