COLLABORATIVE INSTITUTIONAL TRAINING INITIATIVE (CITI)

The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) is available for faculty, staff, or students seeking high quality, peer-reviewed, web-based educational courses in research, ethics, regulatory oversight, responsible conduct of research, research administration, and more. Those interested in accessing the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) information for member campuses, please visit the login page or register for an account here.

DIGITAL TOOLS FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING

The LVAIC Digital Tools for Teaching and Learning conference is a full-day workshop on the integration of digital tools into course design and pedagogy for all LVAIC faculty. The conference includes Lightning Round presentations where LVAIC faculty showcased the use of a specific tool in one of their courses and thematic “Test Kitchen” sessions where presenters provide more information on strategies for effective integration of tools to support student learning outcomes and course goals. The tools created at these sessions are showcased in a “Cook Book” each year. View each year’s tools below:
