When the second HBCU Tech Conference gets underway this week, the leadership, staff, and students of 102 Historically Black Colleges and Universities across the nation will have the opportunity to experience what’s next in higher education. And what’s next includes such tech trends as automation, enhancing hybrid learning capabilities, and teaching XR (extended reality) in classrooms.
This free virtual conference, presented by HP, is designed to offer a vision of what digital transformation looks like on HBCU campuses, while simultaneously expanding students’ career horizons.
The four-day event will feature keynotes by HP executives including Chief Diversity Officer Lesley Slaton Brown and Global Chief Information Officer Ron Guerrier; as well as workshops, product exhibitions from partners Intel and Microsoft, and interactive symposiums. There are tracks offering professional development opportunities for IT staffers and faculty members, and sessions to help college executives prepare their schools for the future.
