New Faculty Resources & Support
Hello and welcome to Delaware Tech! The Center for Creative Instruction & Technology (CCIT) is excited to help and support you in your role as an instructor. This page and the resources provided is dedicated to helping you be successful. We know how challenging it can be to start something new, so we wanted to make sure you had all of the resources and support you need.
CCIT is your one-stop-shop for getting ready for the semester, organizing your course, help with D2L, using tech tools in your courses, and all things teaching and learning with technology. We are here to support and inspire you and look forward to meeting you. There are many opportunities to connect and learn with us, you can visit our website for more information: https://ccit.dtcc.edu/.
New Faculty Hub
CCIT created the New Faculty Hub that has lots of great resources to help you get started in your new role as an instructor. Whether you want to connect with CCIT, learn more about D2L, get tech support, understand the requirements of new faculty, or attend one of our events, we’ve got you covered! Check out all the resources in the hub to learn more.
D2L Instructor Hub
New to D2L or need a refresher? Check out the new D2L Instructor Hub. We designed the hub to provide faculty with a central repository of resources needed to design and teach at Delaware Tech. As you move through the hub, you can earn badges and the course completion certificate!

In this session, we will hear from some instructors that taught HyFlex courses this past semester. We will hear about successes, challenges, lessons learned, and how they are planning to improve and grow based on their experiences. If you are curious about how HyFlex might work for your class, this is a great chance to hear from those who have actually taught using this new format.
Do you want to create attractive pages in D2L that are also accessible to all learners? HTML Templates will make it easy! Are you trying to use columns? Would your students benefit from a timeline? We have a template for that! Maybe you want to use interactive text that appears when students click on a tab or an accordion that unfolds with information. All of these are available as templates and much, much more!
Join us for an engaging session where we will explore effective instructional strategies–the what, why, and how. This session will not only delve into various proven instructional approaches but will also explore the importance of fostering a sense of community to support the seamless implementation of these strategies whether you have an in-person, online, or hybrid classroom setting.
In this session, we’ll explore how you can use your Delaware Tech ThingLink account to create interactive images & 3D models to promote learner engagement. Walk away with strategies to create interactive textbooks, use 360 images to digitize your classroom, create instructor-guided activities, and transform case studies into scenarios to engage learners like never before.
In this session, we’ll dive into Canva, a free, online graphic design tool that all faculty members can use! With Canva, you can use images, graphics, and templates to bring your lessons and course to life! We will learn how to sign up for Canva, tour the available media types, and design our first project!
The purpose of this session is to provide you with a step-by-step list of tasks to complete prior to the beginning of a course. The steps covered in this session correspond with the College’s LMS Minimum Usage Guidelines and will give you an idea of where to get started and what to look for in your course. We’ll also touch on how to leverage D2L’s features and tools to cultivate a supportive space and strategies for fostering inclusivity and engagement within D2L.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is here to stay. AI might seem like a daunting opponent in the world of education, but in this session, we’ll discover ways to make AI your friend. Did you know that instructors can use tools like ChatGPT to increase their productivity? Did you know that students can ethically use ChatGPT for brainstorming or AI-generated text for critical thinking? Let’s talk about how we can use AI effectively and ethically.
