Tech Talk Tuesdays

Tech Talk Tuesday logoTech Talk Tuesday is a series of information sessions hosted by Instructional Services, the University Libraries, and the Institute for Teaching and Learning. The sessions are designed as a quick way to learn more about a technology or topic. You'll learn what it is, why you'd use it, how to get started, how to learn more and, how to receive training. These are not "deep dives", though each session will be staffed by knowledgeable UA personnel who can answer any in-depth questions you may have. You can find handouts and recordings of most of the previous sessions below along with the current schedule.

Please register for each session through ITL.

Please e-mail questions and suggestions to Wendy Lampner,
