Computing & Instructional Technology for Faculty

The Center for Instructional Technology (CIT) supports Duke faculty and instructors in innovative pedagogical development. CIT helps them achieve teaching goals such as increasing student engagement with course materials, supporting active learning strategies, deepening student understanding through authentic learning activities, fostering communication and collaboration, and streamlining course administration. The CIT offers a wide range of faculty support programs and in the past two years has interacted with over 500 faculty and awarded over $90,600 in direct project funding in the form of individual and group grants. CIT also supports the Sakai course management system used by over 60% of courses each term. CIT staff also systematically monitor and evaluate the impact and effectiveness of instructional technologies on the teaching and learning experiences of faculty and students and share findings with the campus community through reports, staff presentations and publications, and the annual Instructional Technology Showcase. Detailed information on all services provided by the CIT can be found on the CIT website at
