The annual Conference on Instruction and Technology (CIT) took place last month at SUNY Cortland.
Theme: Elevate Learning: Taking Education Higher
May 22 - 25, 2018
Videos of the keynote and featured speakers are now on the CPD website:
Keynote Speaker Barbara Oakley, Interim Provost Grace Wang, and Featured Speaker presentations Open for the Public: Practice for a Hopeful Higher Ed (Robin DeRosa), Excelsior Scholarship Reflections of Year 1 Implementation (Patricia Thompson), and The FLEXspace: A One-Stop Shop for Learning Space Design, Pedagogy & Community (Lisa Stephens).


The FACT2 task groups have been set for next year, and are:
1. Artificial Intelligence,
2. Adaptive Learning,
3. Open Pedagogy

Please contact me at if you'd like to volunteer to serve on one of these task groups or could recommend someone at your institution to serve (could be a librarian, library staff, faculty, instructional designer, etc). The composition of the task groups won't be set until August/September, so there is still time to get involved!
