CEIT, a research and development centre at the University of Queensland
, Brisbane, Australia, is about understanding the intersection of learning and technology. It is about asking questions and then taking the time, effort and care to answer them.
The letters -C-E-I-T- came together to meet the traditional needs for naming an organisation, but emerged in pronunciation as something relevant. We are about "seeing": perceiving the world around us, how it works, what is related to what and how can we predispose outcomes? And it is about "IT" - information technology, tools that extend our reach beyond our skin, our immediate senses, ourselves. It is about conducting this activity in public and sharing it through open scholarship, licensing and collaboration.
