Conference to look at education, technology May 19 to 22

SUNY Oswego will host the annual Conference on Institutional Technologies, with around 500 attendees expected to discuss trends in higher education and technology May 19 to 22.

This marks the second time since the conference began in 1992 that Oswego has hosted. CIT was last held there in 1996. 

This year’s conference, “Engaging Minds: Innovative Teaching and Learning,” aims to attract faculty, instructional support professionals, librarians and administrators from across the 64-campus SUNY system, as well as private colleges around the nation.

The four-day event will begin May 19 with pre-conference workshops and a welcome reception that will feature entertainment by the Oswego Jazz Project.

The remaining three days will offer more than 100 faculty-led panels, presentations and hands-on demonstrations in categories such as new media publishing; active/student-centered learning; teaching and learning in innovative spaces; translating teaching, learning and assessment research into practice; discipline-specific technologies; and personal knowledge management and user-created content.

The conference provides faculty, instructional support professionals, librarians and administrators an opportunity to share experiences and expertise, discuss common problems, brainstorm solutions and explore ways to improve learning with technology.

CIT is sponsored by SUNY’s Faculty Access to Computing Technologies Committee, Center for Professional Development, Faculty Council of Community Colleges and University Faculty Senate.
