2023 Virtual Conference
March 28 - 30
It was wonderful to see so many faces in the Zoom sessions as well as at the Meet and Greet. We hope the wide variety of TechX topics inspired you and piqued your interest in learning more about technology, for use both in and out of the classroom.
Recorded versions of the live sessions as well as the pre recorded sessions are available on TechX 2023 and will remain online for your continued engagement.
If you haven’t done so already, please take a moment to tell us about your experience! Your feedback helps us host a conference with a focused opportunity for our campus colleagues, students, and peers to share how they are utilizing technology in their teaching, learning, and research.
On behalf of Information Systems, we thank you and hope you will join us again next time!
