Higher education has been the epicenter of technological innovation for centuries; as these technologies have been adopted on campuses, education has evolved in profound ways. Join us for Tech Talks, as we drive the discussion of information and instructional technologies in higher education forward through talks, demonstrations, and poster sessions.
The Instructional Technology Committee and the Office of Information Technology invite Auburn University Faculty, IT Professionals, and all employees and students to share ideas about and discuss the future of technology in higher education.
Tech Talks will take place at the center of the Auburn University campus in the Student Center. 30-minute talks will be in rooms 2222/2223. Small group demos and poster sessions will be in the ballroom on the third level.
Talks will be 15-20 minutes followed by a short question and answer session.
Two demo areas will be located in the Ballroom with sessions overlapping every 15 minutes. Many of the demos will be done twice, so please review the schedule below.
Most posters will be available throughout the day and their presenters may be available for discussion at different points in the day. All presenters have been asked to be available near their posters from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
From day one, Canvas has been built on openness. Building on the foundation laid by pioneering, forward-thinking open educators, we launched our open platform in 2011 with the goal to make teaching and learning easier. And, thanks in part to an open API and open data and open content, we've been able to do just that. May "open" is a buzzword in the education world today, but for us it's been the very beating heart of what we do all along.
Campus Web Solutions is a cost recovery unit that develops custom web and mobile solutions for the diverse needs of the Auburn University community. The bulk of labor comes from co-op and part-time student workers under the guidance and supervision of several full-time University employees who have expertise in various technology-related fields. As a unit of the User Services department within the Office of Information Technology, CWS strives to maintain a productive, customer-first attitude. The OIT administration strongly believes in the CWS mission (see below) and generously covers the lion’s share of the group’s costs, leaving only part of the student developers’ salaries. All income by CWS is used to pay this remaining balance.
