As we begin a new academic year, UBIT is initiating a more active outreach to campus on new and innovative technology opportunities and issues. The goal is to understand your needs and explore ways technology can better serve the faculty and students.
Starting Fall 2014, UB Information Technology and University Libraries will launch the annual Digital Challenge series. Co-sponsored by the CEISARE, Office of Educational Innovation and Assessment, and Student Life, this series will feature thought-provoking technology topics, ranging from privacy and security to tools for the next generation classroom.
On October 1, 2014 from 12-6:20 p.m. in the Student Union Theater, “Your Digital Footprint” will inspire provocative discussions on online privacy with national experts. We are privileged to welcome the following nationally recognized speakers:
I encourage you to attend and visit digitalchallenges.buffalo.edu to learn more about our speakers and event schedule.
UBIT is currently establishing an innovation lab on campus. This site will allow UB students, faculty and staff to test new and emerging technologies and provide feedback on their experiences.
We are also planning enhancements to our IT infrastructure, especially Wi-Fi at UB, to meet the growing needs of the institution. I am looking forward to reaching out to faculty, staff, and students for suggestions on specific areas of Wi-Fi improvement – such as classrooms, common areas, or residential spaces. Keep a lookout for opportunities to participate around campus.
