Sixth Annual Technology Fair to Take Place During University Conference

The Teaching Learning Technology Roundtable’s (TLTR) Sixth Annual Technology Fair will be taking place from 1:30-5 p.m. Feb. 20 in the SUB Activities Room, the afternoon of University Conference.

The prizes for the TruTech Challenge will be awarded in a ceremony at about 4:30 p.m.

Sungard/ITS will be sponsoring a free dessert table at the Fair until 4:30 p.m. After that time, the Tech Fair will take place in conjunction with the University Conference’s social hour.
