Technology

The College has long been a leader in its commitment to the use of technology to reform instruction. It is home to the highly regarded Florida Center for Instructional Technology (FCIT).   FCIT is funded by the Florida Department of Education, Office of Educational Technology to provide leadership, instructional materials, and support services to educational institutions. (For additional information, select "Centers and Institutes" on the College website, and look for FCIT.)

Through the David C. Anchin Center, since 2001, the federally funded PT 3 Teacher Education Change Initiative (TECH) has provided a systemic approach to University and College of Education change in the ways technology is used by faculty with pre-service teachers. PT 3 has created a critical mass of technology proficient faculty, (over 100) producing redesigned courses and evidence of their effects. For more information go to  www.coedu.usf.edu/pt3 .

During the past eight years, during the construction of the "new" building and remodeling of the old College facility, then state-of-the-art technology was incorporated within the structures. Technical Services and Resources, (TSR) with a full-time staff of nine, support the infrastructure and faculty efforts in their use of technology.  

The College Council has a Technology Committee that makes recommendations to the Council on technology issues and supports faculty in their use of technology. The Laptop Initiative, a pilot project following the national trend to have all students have access to "anytime, anywhere" learning, was implemented in Fall 2003 with a cohort of 25 elementary education pre-service teachers. For more information, select "Centers and Institutes" and scroll down to "Special Projects." These projects are a sample of technical strength within a college where faculty and staff have had access to technology for several years, and most are quite proficient in its use.
