The League for Innovation's Annual Conference on Information Technology (CIT) is the premier showcase of the use of information technology in higher education. Come to the 2002 CIT and see everything from cutting-edge new technologies to tried and true strategies for improving learning through IT, from holograms in the classroom to best practice in basic Web support for traditional courses. This year's conference also includes a special focus on biotechnology and its role in education, as well as a new track designed to facilitate dialogue among math, science, and allied health educators who use computer technology in research and education programs.
