Introducing the #SATech Chat!

The #SATech Chat will take place on Wednesdays, from 2 – 3 p.m. CST on Twitter starting next Wednesday, May 9th!

A few weeks ago, Joe Sabado tweeted about the idea of having a weekly #SATech Chat as a place for weekly discussions around student affairs and technology. Given the interest and discussions seen on Twitter and on blogs on these topics, he was a little surprised a weekly chat hadn’t happened sooner. Even as a student affairs IT professional who works with technology all day, every day, he felt he had a lot to learn and is constantly searching for ideas and perspectives on how technology can be better utilized.

So after he chatted it up with a few more folks to see what interest was out there and recruited co-moderator Kristen Abell, the #SATech Chat was born!

So what exactly is the #SATech Chat? Well, it’s a little bit of a lot of things. We’ll be talking about the latest trends in student affairs and technology, new products and practices, and answering questions. We hope to have a variety of guests join us for different chats to talk about their experiences and ideas for technology moving forward. (Wanna be a guest? Email us at SATechTalk@gmail.com). Most importantly, we’ll be talking about how technology has changed and continues to change our work in the field of student affairs.

Join us next Wednesday, May 9th, from 2 – 3 CST on Twitter to talk to Matt Brinton, NASPA Technology KC Chair-Elect, to talk about the future of the Technology KC and higher ed. Can’t wait to chat!

    Woohoo! This is exciting stuff. May 9th is my birthday, so I will probably not be able to participate. However, I will definitely plan on being there for future #SAtech chats. Game on!

    I’m excited to see this getting off the ground. I won’t be able to attend the first chat (something about a meeting) but I’m looking forward to seeing this grow and be awesome. High five!

    Consider me pumped! Not sure how active I’ll be in live chats, given I’m a full-time employee now, but I’ll see what I can do. Excited to see how this all unfolds.

    This is awesome! I am planning to do my thesis on the role of Social Media in Higher Education. More specifically looking at how practitioners are using it for professional development.
