Tech Days 2019

ChrisWilley_0Chris Willey, Director of the Immersive Media Lab at UW Milwaukee, is the keynote speaker for this year's Tech Days East workshops. The title of his presentation is Extending the Third Place. You can read more about Chris and watch a TEDxUWMilwaukee talk with him on the UWM Research page. Here's the description of his presentation:

Join Chris Willey as he shares ideas on these questions, and moderates a lively discussion that includes your perspective on the future of technology. The purpose of this presentation is about "sharing focus" on our future, together. Additionally, Willey will share the mission, methods, and recent outcomes of the Immersive Media Lab at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee so that you may adopt any/all for your own libraries and communities. He will share what it means to be antidisciplinary, the role of creativity in a "3rd Space" learning environment, and why this is important for our shared technological trajectory.

After lunch, you can choose from a wide variety of breakout sessions including coding & drones, digital archiving, virtual reality, cutting the cable cord, tech classes for adults and seniors and more. The breakout sessions vary depending on location and are presented by your colleagues, including several from SCLS. Thank you for sharing your expertise!

Tech Days East will be held at the Franklin Public Library in Franklin on September 10, Gordon Bubolz Nature Preserve in Appleton on September 11, and Monona Public Library in Monona on September 12. More information on Tech Days is on our Tech Days Wisconsin website.
