TechBits

On the first Friday of every month, ITAC will offer a one-time workshop on a tech topic of interest. During these bite-sized workshops, we will showcase one or two solutions available to campus, in a less than 30-minute presentation.

Attend a quick show-and-tell style demonstration of the tool and how you might use it to satisfy a tech need or improve a process, followed by Q&A.
