Affordability and Accessibility: A Learning Technologies Virtual Conference

Sep 20, 2019

The Big Ten Academic Alliance Learning Technologies Liaisons group is hosting a virtual conference on Affordability and Accessibility for all interested staff at member institutions. This opportunity will bring together peers with a range of expertise to share ideas and knowledge.

Conference organizer Marcia L. Dority Baker, Assistant Director, Academic Technologies, in the Office of Information Technology Services at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln explained, "The work we do to serve teaching and learning with technology is cross-disciplinary — expanding beyond our area and drawing on the expertise and input of many other areas. This work is key to the success of our institutions' core academic mission."
