Centre for Educational Innovation & Technology

CEIT, a research and development centre at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia, is about understanding the intersection of learning and technology. It is about asking questions and then taking the time, effort and care to answer them. The letters -C-E-I-T- came together to meet the traditional needs for naming an organisation, but emerged in pronunciation as something relevant. We are about "seeing": perceiving the world around us, how it works, what is related to what and how can we predispose outcomes? And it is about "IT" - information technology, tools that extend our reach beyond our skin, our immediate senses, ourselves. It is about conducting this activity in public and sharing it through open scholarship, licensing and collaboration.

(Comment.gif: Welcome to the WikiEducator family. After reading this note - -feel free to delete. Wow that's an impressive start to the CEIT node page on WE. If you like, you can make use of our portal page and navigation templates. I set up an example home page for you to consider. If you like it, its easy to tweak and redirect this page to the home page example. Take a look at the Athabasca University and BCcampus pages for ideas. Feel free to contact me via email or Skype to discuss ways in how to get the most from WikiEducator for CEIT @ the University of Queensland. --Wayne Mackintosh 08:43, 3 January 2011 (UTC))
