“The National Institute for Technology and Liberal Education (NITLE) helps liberal arts colleges and universities integrate inquiry, pedagogy, and technology. With our NITLE Network members, we work to enrich undergraduate education and strengthen the liberal arts tradition. Established in 2001, NITLE is the key organization for liberal arts colleges and universities seeking to engage students in the unique learning experience that liberal education provides and to use technology strategically to advance the liberal arts mission.”
