Classroom Instructional Technology

Classroom Instructional Technologies in the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning (FCTL), serves the University’s classroom instructional technology needs. It is comprised of two areas: Technical Services and Equipment Lending. Technical Services is available to assist Colleges and Departments in assessing classroom technology needs and recommending appropriate solutions to meet the teaching and learning objectives. They then engineer, install and support instructional technology solutions in classrooms on the Springfield campus. Equipment Lending houses a limited amount of technology that are available for checkout by faculty, students and staff for use in or out of a classroom in support of either academic or other authorized university usage. CIT also maintains the Classroom Help Desk providing faculty with a one call solution for reporting problems with classroom instructional technology.
