During the 2012-2013 academic year, CIT is interested in partnering with Duke faculty members to investigate the following themes:
Using iPads to Engage Students In Class
CIT will loan iPads to faculty (and students enrolled in their class) who agree to integrate apps designed specifically for use inside the classroom into their curricula. Examples of such applications include LectureTools and Nearpod.
e-Textbooks – Producing and Consuming
CIT will loan iPads to faculty who agree to use iBooks Author, or a similar program, to build an e-textbook to use with future classes, or to faculty (and students enrolled in their class) who agree to use e-textbooks to replace traditional course materials during the semester.
Faculty whose applications are accepted will be asked to participate in specific project planning and evaluation activities, and to share information about their experience using the iPads with CIT.Photo: NASA Goddard Photo and Video
