Information Systems’ annual Academic Technology showcase, TechX, is a virtual event to recognize the many new and creative ways in which technology is being incorporated into classrooms and work settings to foster relationships, derive deeper learning outcomes, and inspire colleagues and peers. On March 26 and 27, join us for live and recorded online presentations highlighting this important work. We will gather for a celebratory meet and greet on Thursday, March 28.
You are invited to participate in this event, sharing your own story or highlighting a colleague’s work. Members of the TechX committee will work with you to find the most engaging and unique way to share your story with campus.
We look forward to hearing from you!
