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

LITRE Goals

LITRE's ultimate purpose is to improve student learning. LITRE's primary strategy is to establish an ongoing, systematic investigation into the effectiveness of technology-based innovations to improve learning. We will use the results of these investigations to build on our successes, shape future investigations, and inform campus decision-making. LITRE goals are:

Improved Student Learning

  • To improve student learning across the University through the use of technology. We will monitor the impact of those innovations on students' abilities in four dimensions:
    - problem solving,
    - empirical inquiry,
    - research from sources, and
    - performance in the discipline.

  • To investigate systematically the effectiveness of technology-based innovations in learning and teaching. We will establish an ongoing mechanism to stimulate and study innovations.

  • To use the results of these investigations to scale successes, shape future investigations, and inform campus decision making. More specifically, we want to:
    - increase student and faculty engagement with technology when shown to be effective in improving learning and teaching.
    - develop appropriate, learning technology-friendly policies.
    - improve the physical learning environment.
