Looking to bounce around some ideas about curriculum or course design? How to incorporate technology into your teaching? Need help with a technology tool? CITG provides thought leadership, recommendations and advocacy to faculty regarding best practices for teaching with technology, developing content, and using Babson tech tools.
The CITG team is dedicated to continually exploring, developing and implementing new ways of leveraging technology – as well as improving current tools – to enhance teaching and learning. Our goal is to augment learning through the use of technology, not to use technology for its own sake. CITG team members are available for faculty consultations, to help determine the best use of technology and innovation to complement their curriculum content and teaching styles. To learn more or to request a consultation, please contact CITG
Finding new ways to help students learn – and learn more effectively – is a central goal of the CITG group. CITG works with program administrators to develop, implement and manage technology tools, including classroom capture, multi-point video conferencing and virtual classroom experiences. We also work closely with faculty to develop and produce learning objects – i.e. digital assets – for use in class and on the web, to host from Blackboard, and to distribute on CD or DVD. To learn more or to request a consultation, please contact CITG.
Interested in learning more about how to create specific digital assets or how to use a certain technology? Need to brainstorm? Are you looking for the best way to teach a class session while traveling? CITG can help!
Whether you have a specific 'how to' question or want to learn more about Babson’s eLearning ePlatform tools and how to integrate them in your classes, we’re here for you.
We regularly help professors brainstorm ideas about adapting current in-person courses for blended environments, and ways to enhance curriculum with technology. We’re even happy to simply share ways that other faculty are partnering with CITG – just get in touch!
CITG also has created short video tutorials and step-by-step tipsheets and we offer in-person small group training and hands-on tutorials. To learn more or to request a consultation, please contact CITG.
Learning Asset Development
The majority of CITG projects involve the design and development of learning assets. We define a learning asset as a digital asset (i.e. multimedia content designed to be shared via the Web, CD or DVD) that is designed to teach a specific concept.
For example, a Marketing professor may come to CITG for assistance in creating a learning asset on conjoint analysis. The result might be a 15-20 minute program incorporating a range of digital media to enhance learning, which could include animation, audio, video, external links and online interactive assessment exercises. Prior to the face-to-face class session, students could access the learning asset through a link on Blackboard to ensure they have a solid introduction to the concept.
To ensure that our learning asset development remains leading-edge, CITG makes it a priority to keep current with the latest tools. Our team boasts a diverse skill set that allows for the development of full, flexible, media-rich learning experiences. Through ongoing research and education, our developers master the latest technologies for delivering eLearning content. This allows us to use today's technology to its best advantage to ensure that our learning object development remains efficient and highly effective.
