Binghamton University to host SUNY instructional technologies conference
Binghamton University will host the 2005 Conference on Instructional Technologies (CIT) from May 23-26. The 14th annual CIT will explore opportunities, challenges and issues involved in teaching methods, technology and learning. Themes to be addressed include: preparing tomorrow’s teachers with technology (PT3); learning outcomes and assessment: raising the bar with technology; and emerging technologies.
Charles Dziuban, director of the Research Initiative for Teaching Effectiveness (RITE) at the University of Central Florida (UCF), will deliver the conference's keynote address at 9 a.m. Wednesday, May 25, in the Watters Theater.
Dziuban has taught research design and statistics at UCF since 1970. Since 1997, he has directed the impact evaluation of UCF's distributed learning initiative, examining student and faculty outcomes and gauging the impact of online courses on the university. In 2000, Dziuban was named UCF's first-ever Pegasus Professor for extraordinary research, teaching and service.
Dziuban will be joined by Patsy Moskal, faculty research associate for R.I.T.E.
CIT, SUNY’s foremost event for sharing best practices and visions for using new technologies that support academics, is held annually on a SUNY campus. Established in 1992 by the SUNY Faculty Access to Computing Technology (FACT) Advisory Committee, the conference allows faculty and instructional support professionals to share experiences and expertise. Sponsored by the University Faculty Senate and the Faculty Council of Community Colleges, the conference has become a unique learning and net-working opportunity across all 64 SUNY campuses and beyond.
Registration, $175 for SUNY and CUNY faculty and staff; $250 for non-SUNY individuals, will run through Friday, May 13. No walk-in registrations will be accepted.
