Tired of emails? See what Slack can do for your inbox.

Join us at the next Learning Innovations Showcase on Thursday, October 17, 12-1pm. The topic for this month's showcase is Slack.com, a cloud-based collaboration and messaging tool used by millions of users, including many users at UCSF and throughout the UC system. Learn from experts about how to start using Slack at UCSF and best practices. Showcase speakers include Jon Johnson, Library Software Developer and co-founder of the UC Tech Slack space; Weston Scott Fisher, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor in Psychiatry; and Sally Moy, School of Nursing student.

Attend the showcase any of the following ways:

Parnassus Location (in-person): S161
Mission Bay Location (in-person): MH 1105
Via Zoom: http://tiny.ucsf.edu/showcase

This bi-monthly showcase is designed by and for the UCSF education community to create opportunities to explore innovative applications of technology in education. At the Learning Innovation Showcase, educators can come together and learn from their peers, share best practices, see demonstrations, and discover new technologies.

The Learning Innovation Showcase provides opportunities to:

  • Meet others in the community and find potential collaborators
  • Participate in hands-on activities
  • Attract funding, develop elevator pitches, get feedback from students and others
  • Share innovative use cases of existing tools - e.g. Zoom
  • Share experiments using newer tools for education - e.g. VR/AR, Raspberry Pi
  • Nurture ideas that could be proposed to CET for IT Roadmap funds

Look forward to more Learning Innovation Showcases, scheduled every quarter. The Learning Innovation Showcase is a collaboration between the IT Governance Committee on Education Technology (CET) and the UCSF Library.
