CUNY’s 17th Annual IT Conference

Technology and Education: Challenges and Opportunities

CUNY’s 17th Annual IT Conference will explore the complicated balance between the challenges and opportunities of using technology in higher education. There is no doubt that technology connects our lives and underlies many educational offerings. This comes with a set of inherent challenges, both mundane and serious. Educators and universities must grapple with what technologies to use in our classrooms, and how to equip our students with the technological literacy they need both to succeed and make informed choices outside of school. Our movements, metrics, and digital footprints are tracked in ways that were inconceivable just decades ago, and data often seems vulnerable to security threats. Nevertheless, technology brings true opportunities in the nature of enhanced engagement, access, and interconnection, to name a few. 

As has been the case since its inception, the conference will be held at John Jay College, offering overviews of the University and colleges’ key IT initiatives, discussions of how technology can support and advance teaching, scholarship, and administration, and a chance to meet with vendors. As always, proposals for presentations are invited from the CUNY community, particularly on how we can address the various challenges and opportunities.
