Technology Day, May 12
Apr 23 2003
On Monday May 12, iLevel will kick off the first day of the Summer
Institute/Teaching with Technology Academy (co-sponsored by IDS and UDM
Libraries) with a series of tech-related events. Primarily, we're
creating a venue for faculty, staff and administration to explore and
celebrate some of UDM's technology resources and curriculum, and to
engage in critical thought about technology.
From 11a.m.-3p.m., visit kiosks in the Student Union hosted by Library
and Media Services, the Instructional Design Studio, iLevel, Student
Tech Team/Tech Mentors, Civic Engineering, Computer Information
Systems, Detroit Collaborative Design Center, and Electronic Critique.
These kiosks will provide computing advice and instruction, and will
also showcase some of the cutting-edge work done by students and
faculty at the University.
Browse freely, ask questions, and enjoy the refreshments.
At 4pm, GUEST SPEAKER, DICK HEBDIGE, will deliver a keynote address
"Un-imagining Utopia: communication technologies after 9/11"
Professor Hebdige is a media and cultural critic who has published
numerous articles on media and popular culture, art, design and
critical theory as well as three books: "Subculture: The Meaning of
Style", "Cut 'n' mix: Culture, Identity and Caribbean Music" and
"Hiding in the Light: On Images and Things." He is currently Director
of the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center and a Professor in the
departments of Studio Art and Film Studies at the University of
California, Santa Barbara.
This address will take place in the new Genevieve Fisk Loranger Exhibit
Space (Loranger Architecture Building), which was partially funded
through the iLevel Project.
I hope that we can count on having very good attendance at both of the
events. I am also interested in your comments, suggestions, and
proposals for next year.
I would like to thank the University Faculty Development Committee and
The Dudley Randall Center for Print Culture for cosponsoring the May 12
