UB faculty, instructors and staff are invited to a day of discussion and hands-on demos of the latest technology to transform teaching and learning.


What will the classroom of the future look like? Can Esports foster student engagement? What can we do today to keep moving higher education forward?

These are some of the topics we'll be discussing the morning of October 17 at UB's Center for Tomorrow. Then, join us in the afternoon for a peak inside the Dell Technologies tour bus, where you can try out the latest technology, some of which is already changing the game at UB. UB food truck favorites Big Blue and Little Blue will also be on hand, and anyone who attends the morning sessions will get a ticket for a free lunch.
