UIW Tech Fair




UIW Tech Fair 2011In 2010, the UIW Tech Fair began as an idea to show and spread the newest trends in educational technology. Its inaugural event was in April of the following year in the Marian Hall Ballroom. Exhibitors and presenters from the edtech industry and faculty from UIW demonstrated the latest in instructional technology software and practices.

And the UIW Tech Fair has grown from there but remains true to its roots as a showplace for learning tools and a sharing space for how best to use them.

Join us as UIW Tech Fair embarks on its next exposition. Check back for updates on schedules, attendees, and what you can expect to see. Also follow us on Twitter (@UIWTechFair) and Facebook by clicking on the links.
