Welcome to the CLT Wiki Tech Talks!

The Center for Language and Technology (CLT) offers a brownbag series called Wiki Tech Talks for graduate students and faculty in the College of Languages, Linguistics & Literature.

Why Wiki Tech Talks?

The purpose of Wiki Tech Talks is to provide a venue for graduate students and faculty in the LLL College to give a quick demonstration of an interesting learning tool, website, or technology-based activity that they know or use for teaching languages or literature. This is a great opportunity not only to share personal experiences with technology, but also to learn from other faculty and graduate students. Moreover, presenters can emblazon their virtual backpack (and their CV!) with an official badge they will earn from the CLT showing that they contributed towards training their peers.

When and where will Wiki Tech Talks happen?

Wiki Tech Talks take place once a month on Wednesdays, 12p – 1p in 155B Moore Hall. Below are the Wiki Tech Talks dates for Fall 2016:
