Research and Evaluation

CIT conducts research on the effectiveness of innovative teaching approaches and technologies. We seek to determine the individual and institutional benefits of using digital technology and to promote best practices in teaching and learning. In addition, CIT evaluates the projects it supports in order to benchmark effectiveness. Through these efforts, we help identify and promote best practices in teaching and learning and provide all Duke students with exceptional learning experiences.
