What is Technology Happy Hour?

Starting in August 2017 the library, joined by the Teaching and Learning Center and ITs, will be hosting a regular quarterly “Technology Happy Hour.” This THH offers an informal setting in which to showcase relevant or emergent technologies. This series focuses on exploring how emerging technologies could impact teaching, learning and research within the ATSU community. These informal meetings offer hands-on practical experience with a promoted technology, pre-selected for its innovative potential.  Although these happy hours do not provide formal training, they will be accompanied by resources provided by the TLC and, when applicable, the special projects office to further promote continued interest.


Participants have the opportunity to work with the technology in a consultative way, one on one or in very small groups, to foster natural brainstorming and discussion. To that end, representatives from the ETDC, ITS and the TLC will all be present to provide technological and pedagogical advice or troubleshooting. The ultimate goal of these happy hours is 1. to engage students and create compelling learning opportunities across all ATSU programs and 2. to foster and support interprofessional collaboration and make these technologies more accessible.
