UB EXCITE (University at Buffalo Excellence in Course Instruction Through Enquiry) is CEI's latest initiative to promote innovation in teaching and learning at UB.
As part of UB EXCITE, faculty can apply for funding to redesign their courses and the support needed to teach them.
Selected faculty will form a professional learning community to collaboratively redesign their courses; the faculty will then teach the redesigned courses and collect data to evaluate the courses’ effectiveness. The collected data will guide further refinement of the redesigned courses.
Course redesign, implementation and revision will form iterative cycles.
