The CEITR is the go-to department for faculty, staff, students, and alumni who are passionate about using technology-based tools, learning theories, and instructional strategies to promote quality teaching and learning. With a strong focus on K-12, higher education, and corporate settings in both online and face-to-face formats, the center proactively tackles the challenges related to online teaching and learning, as well as global trends and issues in education.
The center has two major missions:
The vision of the center is to create a dynamic, resourceful center that:
To achieve this vision, the Center adopted the following themes of practice, teach, research and reflect.
Cycle 1: Practice, in which center members apply their knowledge into their workplace.
Cycle 2: Using their knowledge and experiences from their practice to teach their students.
Cycle 3: Conduct research related to problems or issues identified within their practice and/or teaching.
Cycle 4: Reflect, in which they examine what they can learn from their research results. Their reflection will be used in their practice.
Practice will be the first stage of the next cycle. The cycles may continue endlessly, through which members evolve into scholarly practitioners.
The goal is to create a center that:
The center is a place where students, alumni, and faculty will find the collegiality and socialization necessary for an advanced community of learning. The research will be cultivated and supported in a variety of ways including offering the center membership, research fellowship, or student assistantship.
The Fellows in Residence role has been designed to usher in the potentials of like-minded researchers who desire to become part of the research enterprise. The Research Centers implemented the voluntary role in 2020, and has since grown the cadre of fellows who work within each center. We continue to invite those who are interested in becoming fellows to reach out to each center for more information.
Fellow in Residence is a volunteer role with all the perks of building a working role by helping us produce research, join projects, engage in publishing, be part of the Phoenix Scholar editorial board, present, and the list goes on.
