Sponsored by UIW’s Instructional Technology department, more than 500 students, faculty and staff as well as representatives from other local universities attended this year’s 2014 Tech Fair held April 9. The fair featured 24 presentations at three venues:

  • The Vendor Spotlight – Vendors such as McGraw/Hill, Cengage, Blackboard, Lumens, and Tableau as well as other technology companies, gave presentations on how they are using technology in the classroom.
  • UIW Focus – UIW faculty showcased how they are integrating technology such as smartphones, iPads, and Blackboard to engage students.
  • The Digital Stage – Students and faculty shared digital poster sessions on such diverse topics as iPads, video game development, and financial aid.

There were 17 vendors in attendance, along with representatives from UIW schools, organizations, and services; the participants were spread throughout Marian Hall Ballroom and the Student Center Lounge.

In addition, the fair featured a ghost keynote speaker from Apple who presented on the topic of “Mobility in Higher Education.” Due to Apple policy, the speaker’s name could not be promoted publicly.
