The Institute for Instructional Technology (IIT) is a faculty-centered initiative
co-sponsored by the Office of Information Technology
(OIT) and the Center
for Teaching Excellence. It provides skills training and peer mentoring to
faculty wishing to explore the ways in which technology can be integrated into
their course curricula. This joint enterprise exploits the talents and resources
of both campus units by providing hands-on, interactive training, instructional
design guidance, product development advice, and pedagogical discussion and debate.
The IIT training modules focus on a variety of technological applications
through the presentation of hands-on learning modules. Faculty Development Workshops
are additionally offered in which participants can work on a specific course
with the assistance of technology expert staff members. Our goal is to guide
participants in the thought processes and skills needed to undertake a technological
modification or transformation of the instructional materials and learning environments
they create for their students.
The course catalog and registration for IIT modules is located at the Training@Maryland website (www.training.umd.edu).
