Using the Framework


LITS is committed to working with campus partners to offer progressively immersive digital learning experiences for students across the framework’s five mindsets. A primary function of the framework is organizing and describing these digital experiences occuring in faculty-led classes, LITS course support, online learning modules, workshops, and other venues. When paired with an interactive interface, the fully populated framework promises to provide an effective means for both discovering and expanding digital learning opportunities at Hamilton.
