Instructional Design & Support

Project RITE

Project RITE (Research of Instructional Technology in Education) is a grant opportunity for faculty at UT Knoxville and UT Martin to study the impact of using technology-mediated instructional strategies on student learning outcomes. Participants must design and conduct their own research regarding the question of how instructional technology affects student learning. The research pilots/projects should measure the use and effectiveness of technologies intended to enhance both the teaching and learning process.
