To be a catalyst for excellence and innovation in teaching, learning, and curriculum development including integration of new technologies that enhance student, staff, and faculty success.
The Centre for Instructional Technology and Development (CITD) is a service department within SAIT's Academic Division. Our focus is supporting the schools and centres in their pursuit of SAIT's strategic priorities.
The Centre for Instructional Technology and Development offers leadership and support in three major areas:
