LAS Technology Presentation Series

two students on tablet computers

ATLAS will be hosting a series of online technical talks for LAS faculty, instructors and staff.  The talks will demonstrate many innovative ways information technologies are being leveraged across the college.  The events will feature talks by faculty and instructors covering the application of information technology in instruction and research.  Technology staff from the College will talk about technology today and tomorrow and demonstrate tools that may benefit research and instruction. The talks are typically half day events with a time in the middle where technology staff will be available for consultations.

The events take place in the second week of every month starting on September 8th and will be run virtually using Zoom.  Please check this website for the exact dates and times and to register. After registering, you'll receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Zoom event.
