CIC Faculty Guide Online
Welcome to the CIC
The CIC Faculty Guide Online provides an introduction to technology-based pedagogy. The "CIC Basics" pages discuss how to design a computer-integrated course, organize class materials on the CIC local area network, or LAN, and adapt your current syllabus for CIC. The "Teaching with CIC Resources" section reviews options for using Word at all stages of the writing process, incorporating PowerPoint into course activities, designing online research assignments, assigning web projects and using eportfolios created with Google Sites or Canvas.
"Teaching with Canvas Tools" provides instructions for using various components of the Canvas learning management system--from creating syllabi, assignments and resource pages or files to assigning peer reviews and eportoflios to grading. "Teaching with Catalyst Tools" describes effective use of Collect It, an online assignment dropbox; GoPost, a web-based discussion tool; and CommonView, a website creation tool.
Although we include technical instructions for creating class materials and setting up online tools, we focus on pedagogy, for educational technology is useful only as it helps you and your students acheive specific teaching and learning goals.
In CIC, we are continually exploring ways to effectively integrate technology into teaching and learning. We hope that you will make your experiences in the classroom part of the program’s ongoing development. We welcome your insights both concerning successful and unsuccessful strategies in the computer-integrated classroom.
