Technology plays a critical role on the Portland State University campus. By facilitating access to information, it can impact the learning experience and influence academic achievement. As part of the Portland State of Mind celebration, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) will host a series of talks that highlight selected issues regarding the use of technology on campus. The OIT Tech Talks series is designed to give the PSU community an opportunity to listen to—and learn from—the experience of staff and faculty on campus who have used technology to facilitate the academic experience.

Topics will include:

“Accessibility in a Wired World”
presented by Jen Dugger Director, Disability Resource Center

Jeanne Enders, PhD Executive Director, School of Business Online Initiatives, School of Business Administration
