On behalf of the Information Resources Division, I would like to invite all students, faculty and staff to visit the 2013 Tech Fair, set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3 in Marian Hall Ballroom.
Now in its third year, the Fair continues to grow and this year will include ongoing demonstrations of how students and faculty are using technology to enhance teaching and learning. The Fair will also play host to 16 vendors (including AT&T, Blackboard, Dell, and McGraw-Hill) that will highlight new technologies, as well as provide opportunities for attendees to learn more about the IT employment offerings in the region through an employer showcase.
I continue to be impressed with the innovative ways in which UIW faculty are integrating technology into the curriculum, and I encourage you to come out and see some of their creative work. This year’s fair will also highlight technologies that continue to evolve, such as the e-book and lecture capture/streaming solutions.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we’ll also have some great door prizes for attendees, including an Apple TV, gift cards, T-shirts, and more. And food will be available throughout the day!
Presentations, demos and giveaways will continue throughout the Fair, so please drop by, peruse the exhibits, stay for a presentation, and enjoy some refreshments.. We’ll look forward to seeing you, Wednesday, April 3!
Vice President for Information Resources and CIO
