From Jamey Hansen, Interim Information Technology Director, College of Liberal Arts
I attended part of yesterday's Information Technology Training and Support Network (IT-TSN) kickoff meeting. It was wonderful to see so many IT professionals coming together to share ideas, learn from each other, and make cross-unit connections. The room (one of the STSS classrooms) was filled to capacity with many more from off site. The organizers put on a well coordinated event, and I expect it will have great success moving forward. Yesterday, they focused on Google Apps.
If some of your staff were there, good. If not, you might suggest that they get involved.
Congratulations to the IT-TSN planning group: David Anderson (OIT), Diane Kleinman (U Services), Karen Matthes (Extension), Susan McKinnell (OIT), Garreth McMaster (CSOM), Kathy Olson (OIT), Alethea Oertwich (Crookston), Sheri Pihlaja (Duluth), Kevin Smith (CLA), Larry Storey (CSE), and Michael Winters (Libraries).
