Innovation Book Circle
In 2013, the Book Circle replaced the Innovation Fund. Approximately 40 faculty received a copy of Teaching Naked: How Moving Technology Out of Your College Classroom Will Improve Student Learning by José Antonio Bowen.
Throughout the summer participants engaged in online discussions (via a Moodle group) of the book's content. At a luncheon in September, participants gathered to discuss their reading and plans to integrate an innovative change in one or more Fall Semester courses. At the conclusion of the Fall Semester the group will meet again to discuss the results of their individual changes.
Those that complete the process will receive a stipend from CIT to spend on technology.
