Committee on Instruction & Technology (CIT)

COMMITTEE CHARGE

The Committee on Instruction and Technology (CIT) is charged with representing Senate and Faculty interests in online education, as well as all other potential issues surrounding instructional technology.  The overarching purview of CIT is to ensure that adoption of online course formats, or additional means of instructional technology, serve to enhance UCLA’s programs and maintain academic quality of the university’s instructional programs. This is to be an independent committee of the Academic Senate (i.e. not a sub-committee of any other committee or council currently existing as part of the Academic Senate). CIT maintains an active relationship with the Statewide University Committee on Academic Computing and Communications (UCACC) through its UCACC representative.
