IT Tech Fair
Information technology for campus on display at annual Tech Fair
3:48 p.m., Oct. 24, 2012--“Seeing demonstrations of things -- it’s one thing to read about them, but it’s better to talk to an expert and see how it works or can work in my situation,” said one of the approximately 300 participants at the University of Delaware IT Tech Fair, held Thursday, Oct. 18.
The fair offered faculty and staff members the opportunity to learn about existing and emerging technologies.
Tea with the provost
“The opportunity to see some of the up and coming equipment and examine state-of-the-art technology,” was just one of the reasons that participants said they attended the fair.
Staff members from IT and other technology related departments on campus were available to answer questions.
“I enjoyed the individualized attention that I received with each person along the way. Everyone was very inviting, helpful and full of useful information,” one participant commented.
The fair emphasized hands-on technology stations to familiarize participants with technology available for them to use inside and outside the classroom.
“It was great to see tools that we can use and make connections with IT personnel who can help set up and learn to use the tools. I feel that I know more about what to ask for, who to approach and how to get my problems solved,” said another participant.
