Annual Faculty Technology Showcase

The Faculty Technology Showcase is a yearly event co-sponsored by Information Technology and the Library and Educational Technology Committee. It is a time to speak with your fellow faculty about how they are using technology in their teaching and research. We will have several faculty presenters stationed around the room to demonstrate and discuss their endeavors. Make sure you don’t miss Information Technology and Watzek Library tables to explore new resources that are available.

The 2018 Showcase will be Thursday, December 6th, 3pm - 5pm in Smith Hall (Albany Quadrangle).

Presenter list: TBA
