Register for Faculty Technology Day
Discernment in Technology and Education
May 14, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Costantino Room, Law School, Lincoln Center

This year’s title and theme is Discernment in Technology and Education. Throughout the day, through keynotes and concurrent sessions, we’ll explore the ways technology and education intersect when considering not just what we can do – but what we should do.

Our two fantastic keynote speakers:
Clive Thompson, journalist and author of Coders: The Making of a New Tribe and the Remaking of the World. Clive will be speaking about his recent research on the historical role of women in software development and coding, which he reported on in the New York Times Magazine article, “The Secret History of Women in Coding.”

Meredith Broussard, data journalist and assistant professor at the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute of New York University, and the author of Artificial Unintelligence: How Computers Misunderstand the World, will also speak.

Throughout the day there will be breakout sessions on technology in relation to pedagogy, research, accessibility, security and more, with many led by members of Fordham’s own faculty.

The full agenda will be forthcoming in a follow-up email and details will be available on the web page at Fordham IT News. Please use the Twitter hashtag #factechday19 and follow us, @FordhamIT, on Twitter.

As always, we will offer breakfast, a hot lunch, great door prizes, and close with a wine and cheese reception.

We look forward to participating in this day of conversation, discovery, and exchange of views with you. Please RSVP to reserve your space and to help us plan for the event.
