Leverage technology to engage students in community and deepen learning

Technology is one of five key synergistic and often interdependent domains–along with innovation, diversity, evidence-based teaching, and assessment & evaluation–that guide the resources, services, and mission of the CTI.

Learning technologies afford instructors and students unprecedented opportunities to engage the curriculum and each other in innovative ways in face-to-face, hybrid, and online environments. For example, CTI consultants support instructors in using technology to support evidence-based practices such as polling, peer review, social annotation, and small group collaboration. We also help faculty leverage the tools available in Canvas, our learning management system, to actively engage students in their own learning.
