     Center for Excellence in Teaching


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, assists and supports faculty in the development, use and assessment of effective instructional and curricular strategies. The CET provides support for innovative, educational exploration across the curriculum, and seeks to foster a community of teaching practice. CET also works collaboratively with faculty to incorporate student-centered, pedagogically-sound technology into the classroom.

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