LITRE: Learning In A Technologically-Rich Environment Banner NC State University
Welcome to LITRE


In 2002, learning in a technology-rich environment was chosen as the theme for NCSU's quality enhancement plan. This theme was recommended by the Deans' Council and endorsed by the executive officers and chancellor.

LITRE was launched in 2004 with three large FirstWave projects and a faculty small-grants program.

FirstWave Projects

The three FirstWave Projects were the G-108 experimental classroom, Flyspace, and ClassTech. Principal Investigators of these projects provided annual reports for 2004-2005 and 2005-2006. Additionally, based on 2004-2005 LITRE findings and endorsed by the LITRE Advisory Board, another observational study of the ClassTech Project was conducted during 2005-2006.

Additional information on each of these is available at the links below:




Faculty Small-Grants Program

The faculty grants program awarded grants of $2,000 to $10,000 to faculty to help implement innovative technology. To date, 41 grants have been awarded. Each grant project applied new or existing technology in or outside the classroom, and included a plan to assess student learning.
