About the CET
The Center for Excellence in Teaching was established in late 2001 to serve college-wide faculty pedagogical interests and needs. It provides instructional support to faculty as they work to innovate teaching methodologies. The CET
also facilitates the integration of technology into the curriculum and
fosters conversations among faculty about effective teaching and learning.

The CET provides FIT faculty with equipment, expertise and support for their
pedagogical interests and needs. The Center may be used for these academic purposes only.
The Center is available to faculty members 24/7. Users must have a current FIT
faculty card that has been activated by Security to operate the front door.
Please go to the Security Office on the 4th floor to have your card
activated for this purpose.
Workstation seats are available on a first come, first serve basis. Usage of the video workstation can be reserved ahead of time. Contact
the CET coordinator, 7-4063, to reserve this equipment.
The Center’s computers cannot store any users’ files except during work sessions. Machines are rebuilt every evening and any files saved to the local hard drive are deleted. Users may store their work in their personal local network storage area. Users should bring zip disks, floppy disks or firewire drives for portable storage.
The CET is not able to lend equipment or manuals. We ask that faculty not remove any lab references or manuals from the Center's premises. Please be aware that at the Center, as elsewhere, duplication of commercial CDs is illegal and not permitted. Similarly, copying of proprietary software is illegal and not permitted.
Food and drink are not generally allowed in the CET in order to preserve
equipment and maintain a hygienic environment.
