Project RITE is an opportunity for faculty to receive grants that will
promote academic developments and collateral activities to advance the
assessment of technology-mediated student learning outcomes. This is an
opportunity for faculty at University of Tennessee Knoxville and Martin to design and conduct
their own research regarding the question of how instructional
technology affects student learning. Participants will design research
pilots/projects to measure the use and effectiveness of technologies
intended to enhance both the teaching and learning process.
