Keynote Description

We, as IT professionals, play a critical role in designing, developing, and supporting the digital campus. We have created and evolved the digital campus over the last forty years, and in 2020 it became the primary mode of interaction for our communities. What can we learn from the rapid pivot to online, and more importantly, how can we evolve our thinking and approaches?

Let’s discuss how we can use our expertise and our voice to create digital spaces where people can thrive. Using ideas from fields such as critical design practices, conflict management, and polarities, we will explore the most effective approaches for providing spaces where multiple voices are empowered, and diverse communities can thrive.

The session will be interactive.

Opening Remarks for the conference will take place from 8:45-9:15am

UW-Madison’s IT landscape can be a jumbled and confusing space. Our team would like to solicit feedback about creating a curated set of resources and best practices that would help new (and existing) UW-Madison IT professionals better orient themselves to the campus IT environment and inspire a sense of belonging with the campus IT community.
