Tech Boot Camp

Tuesday, March 27 | 5:45PM–7:00PM | Zurich E
Session Type: Professional Development
Each day, our inboxes and water-cooler conversations are abuzz with the "next big thing." But keeping tabs on emerging tools and their possible implications for campus can be difficult amid the rigor of our day-to-day routines. In this session, you'll learn from colleagues about emerging tools and their potential applications on campus and in your professional life. Facilitators will be positioned at stations around the room, allowing you to experience one tool or to float between discussions.
