The last year and a half gave us a glimpse of what the future may hold for the use of technologies in our daily work at CUNY, regardless of whether we continue to conduct it online or in person. What technologies do we expect to see in higher education in the future for teaching, learning, advising, administration, meeting, collecting data or collaborating and sharing ideas and documents? What do we hope to see, and what benefits will result? What do we fear with the arrival of these technologies?
For the 20th Anniversary Annual CUNY IT Conference we invite the CUNY community to share our diverse visions for the ideal — our utopias — as well as our fears of what could be lost — the possible dystopias. Proposals are due by September 15, 2021.
This 20th CUNY IT Conference will be held on December 2-3, 2021, exclusively online and is being organized by new Co-Chairs, Greet Van Belle of York College and Bronwen Stine of the School of Professional Studies. The Conference Co-Chairs and I envision presentations to start productive conversations among and between academics, staff, admins, instructional technologists, information technologists and/or external vendors.
