LIT Advisory Committee

Who Represents Your Department?

The Learning Innovation and Technology Advisory Committee provides direction on ways to leverage innovative learning strategies and academic technology tools to foster excellence in teaching and learning at Wentworth. The committee acts as a conduit for the two-way dissemination of information to enhance communications among the faculty and academic leaders and provide a bridge for effective implementation of innovations in teaching and learning. We stay abreast of technological, philosophical, and operational advances that impact learning strategies, academic technology and provide advice on how Wentworth should prepare to support current and 21st century learners. Our goal is to foster excellence in teaching and learning at Wentworth.

When We Meet

The LIT Advisory Committee meets twice each term. The month that we meet we host two face to face meetings with the same agenda to maximize the face to face dialogue.
