A program now offered through CTE that provides tips, tools, frameworks, and rationale for the effective integration of technology and education.

Technology and the anytime-anywhere access to an ever-growing amount of information has profound implications for teaching and learning. Having endless opportunities literally in the palm of our hand has completely revolutionized how the classroom can work and why the fusion of tradition and technology is something not to be ignored, but instead embraced. The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) recognizes the growth and popularity--and the challenge--of adding technology into the classroom. The Foundations of Instructional Technology (FiT) program series offered through CTE provides tips, tools, frameworks, and rationale for the effective integration of technology within teaching to the encouragement of smartphones as learning tools, the FiT program provides multiple levels of instruction, resources, and guidance when it comes to integrating technology with teaching and learning. The FiT series is a collaboration with Instructional Technology Services (ITS) and the College of Liberal Arts at Texas A&M. Sharon Huston and Sharon Gibson-Mainka with ITS and Shweta Kalani with the College  of Liberal Arts come together with Dr. Nate Poling at CTE to teach about technology and offer perspectives on teaching in a digital age. Registration is available to Faculty, Post Doctorates, Graduate Students, and Staff. For more information about registration, please visit ers.tamu.edu.
