Information Systems and the Teaching and Learning Collaborative are pleased to announce that Ms. Hannah Inzko has accepted the position of Director of Academic Technology at Wake Forest University.
Graduating from The Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelors of Arts in Film and Video Production, Hannah started her career at The Pennsylvania State University where she served as the Media Commons Manager, overseeing the budget and operations of 28 physical locations spread out over 24 commonwealth campuses. In 2014, Hannah accepted a position as the Director of Learning Innovation and Faculty Engagement at the University of Miami reporting directly to the Assistant Vice President of Academic Technologies, where she oversaw a team of Senior Instructional Designers and IT Specialists. Additionally, during her tenure at the University of Miami, she continued her education, earning a Master of Science in Education in Community and Social Change.
Hannah’s experience in higher education instructional design and multimedia aligns with the institutional need for a passionate leader in academic technology to enrich academic technologies and support services. During the interview process, Hannah stood out as a positive and enthusiastic individual, demonstrating the skill set needed to forge relationships with schools, departments, and faculty members throughout the Wake Forest campus community.
In addition to working closely with Information Systems, Hannah will work in collaboration with the Teaching and Learning Collaborative, The Office of Online Learning, ZSR Library staff, and the Instructional Technology Group (ITG) to enrich educational technologies and the support services that enhance teaching, learning and research across our campus community.

This message was emailed to faculty on Feb. 8 by Mur Muchane, associate vice president for information technology and chief information officer:
This spring we are hosting our much anticipated annual TechXploration event that showcases academic uses of technology. Have you discovered a use of technology that helps with teaching, learning, or scholarship that you would like to share with your colleagues? Do you have a student working with a particular technology that you would like to see at TechXploration?
The purpose of this event is to allow faculty, staff and students to see how technologies are being leveraged in teaching, learning, research, engagement, and creative activity at Wake Forest University. Each year, participants and attendees increase as TechXploration brings together faculty and faculty-recommended students to share their experiences with current technology.
TechXploration will be held on Tuesday, April 18th, in room 401 of the Benson University Center. Each presenter will have a space set up in room 401 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to display a poster board, presentation materials, and their technology. Attendees are invited to walk around and learn more about the exciting use of technology on the Wake Forest campus any time between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The event will be catered by Aramark. If you cannot be present for the entire event, we would still appreciate you participating for as much time as you can.
Please contact Pat Idol or Ginny Mikkola at email@example.com by Tuesday, March 21st, to inform us of your plans to participate in TechXploration.
