Tech Tuesdays with AVP & CTO Gayleen Gray are back this summer!
Last summer, McMaster AVP & CTO Gayleen Gray invited the McMaster community to ‘Tech Tuesdays’ for the months of July and August. Thanks to feedback from the IT community, we’ve developed a new format for these informal chats to suit our virtual campus environment. Tech Tuesdays will still be an opportunity for Gayleen to hear the community’s thoughts, ideas and perspectives about technology and the possibilities for IT at McMaster, but with themes attached to each session.
Every other Tuesday in July and August from 12:00 – 1:00 PM, Gayleen will open the discussion with a few remarks and updates on a key theme shaping our technology landscape. Additional members from University Technology Services (UTS) will also be present to facilitate a conversation, share ideas, and collect your feedback on all things tech. Please see the schedule and topics below. Faculty, students, staff, and other members of the campus community are welcome!
Please note the final date of this series has changed to August 18, 2020.
