Is social networking a fad?  What about cloud computing or Google Wave? What is the "pet rock" of IT? In this session, Terry Gray will lead a discussion of IT evolution and revolution, exploring fads, recurring cycles, and exponential changes that are fundamental to understanding the information technology landscape. Audience members will be encouraged to share their own favorite examples!

IT Student Strategy Update

Kelli Trosvig, Interim Vice President and Vice Provost, UW Information Technology
Wednesday, September 29
3:00-4:00PM

Odegaard Room 220

Students want (and deserve) technology that operates seamlessly across the campus. How do we at the UW build an IT strategy to support students in their academic success and position them for lifelong learning? How do we align autonomous units at the university to provide a seamless technology experience for students? Last year faculty, staff, and students produced UW’s first IT Strategy for Students, which identified students’ top IT needs. Some of the areas identified in this report include: enhanced Wi-Fi access, improved classroom technologies, better library research tools, and on-line tools for course management that are easy to use. Kelli’s session reviews the findings of this report, and explores how UW-IT is aligning their offerings to augment the technology experience for those at the university.

Kelli Trosvig is the Interim Vice President and Vice Provost for Information Technology at the University of Washington.
