Plan to attend U of M's inaugural technology expo for staff, faculty and students
IT Day, organized by Information Services and Technology (IST), is a one-day technology expo taking place this May 10 from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm in the Engineering and Information Technology Complex on the Fort Garry Campus.
IT Day is an opportunity for all staff, faculty and students to discover more about work related to Information Technology at the U of M. IT staff will share their experience and expertise, and some of the exciting projects currently in progress.
The day will consist of IT sessions in the morning and an open house/IT fair in the afternoon. Morning sessions, led by IT staff, are open to all and will include AI in the enterprise, information security, the evolution of service monitoring and IT privacy.
The afternoon will feature an open house with booths and displays in the Engineering Atrium demonstrating IST services and some fun activities. Booths will include the IST Mobile Service Desk, security awareness, AI in the Enterprise demo, media production, virtual reality, the IT development process, Garner IT research and more.
All university staff, faculty and students are invited to attend. Afternoon participants will also have the chance to win an iPad!
Lynn Zapshala-Kelln, Vice-President Administration, and Mario Lebar, Chief Information Officer, will open the day.
“We have an abundance of talent and expertise at the University, but we don’t always have an opportunity to share the interesting work we are doing,” says Lebar.
“We hope IT Day will help foster a community of practice that will build on our collective knowledge and wealth of experience.”
