Chat and Chow events continue Oct. 22

The Chat, Chow, & Web 2.0 professional development series, hosted by The Fitz, IT, and Instructional Technology, is open to all faculty and staff. Meet in the main lounge of McEnery; lunch is provided. An RSVP appreciated, but not necessary, to Jason Spartz at

The first event was titled “Just Google it,” and demonstrations were given by Moni Berg-Binder (Biology), Lori Charron (Communication), and Karen Hemker (director of Disability Services) who talked about how Google Apps have improved their efficiency.

The next session, “Curiouser and Curiouser”  will be on Oct. 22. Topics are 3D printing and Business Intelligence. Staff and Faculty are invited.

A printer that can create jewelry, hand guns, or car bodies?  The IT department's  3-D printer might not be quite that sophisticated, but  Jason Spartz (Instructional Technology) will demonstrate what it can do and speculate on how faculty may be using 3-D printers in the future. In addition, Michael Ratajczyk (Business) will satisfy your curiosity about something called Business Intelligence.
