Mission

The Center for Information Technology in Education (CITE) will play an integral part in Northwest Missouri State University's effort to enhance student learning through the use of technology. CITE will operate in such a way as to capitalize on the talents of Northwest's faculty and provide them with an opportunity to advance their understanding of information technology's applications to learning, to develop relevant applications for their fields, and to spend time with their colleagues helping them apply information technology to their courses and programs. 

Beyond supporting the instructional technology needs of Northwest faculty, the CITE office also encourages and supports the scholarship of teaching by assisting Northwest faculty in the development and sharing of pedagogical and content-specific knowledge, supporting faculty in their teaching and professional activities, and providing faculty with access to professional development support and resources. Specific services areas the CITE office provides include teaching, research and the scholarship of teaching, student support and personal enrichment.

A more comprehensive vision for CITE is the leadership role it will play in advancing Northwest as Missouri's center for the testing and development of computer applications for the enhancement of learning.
