The UI Support Community for Instructional Technology (SCIT) group meets twice a semester, and provides a venue for anyone who works with instructional technology at the University of Iowa to connect with one another on best practices, emerging trends, and new instructional technology.  These technologies include ICON, lecture capture, digital media, student response systems, and other technologies used for instruction.  Meetings are announced on as well as the OTLT-INSTRUCTIONAL-TECH-UPDATES listserv.

One instructional support person is appointed by the Collegiate IT Director to take part in the Core Team.
