Call for Presentations

The STC planning committee is excited about this year’s conference which will be held on the virtual platform, OnAir by EventsAir.

Regardless of where we host the conference, what makes STC great is the generosity of our presenters and the great conversations and information sharing that happens when we get together. We have a lot to talk about this year, please consider presenting on your technology triumphs and tribulations.

Online presentation submission is open now. To submit your presentation proposals go to the vSTC Session Submittal Portal. Submissions are due by May 7, 2021.

We are looking for sessions in many formats: presentations, panels, birds-of-a-feather, etc. If you have a great idea for a panel, but don’t have enough panelists, submit the idea and our session coordinators may be able to fill the gaps.

Visit the STC homepage to learn about this year's guiding theme.

Be well,
STC Planning Committee

Hello SUNY Technologists,

The STC planning committee has been hard at work looking at options to hold STC this coming June. We know budgets are tight and travel has been suspended on most SUNY campuses. With that in mind, we are planning to hold STC virtually again this year, Tuesday June 22 to Thursday June 24. The platform will be different, more engaging, and allow us to have a fun and informative conference. There will be no cost to attend, so we hope to see many of you there!

We have a lot to talk about this year, please consider presenting on your technology triumphs and tribulations. The theme for this year’s conference:

Disruption, Engagement, Accomplishment

In a year unlike any other, SUNY technologists faced many challenges on campus, in the classroom, in the office, and at home. STC will focus on how we leveraged our skills, creativity, and tools to help faculty, students, and staff to engage with each other and build community across the virtual campus. It wasn’t always perfect and sometimes it wasn’t pretty, but we can be proud of what we accomplished.

Join us to reflect on how we adapted and overcame these challenges and steep learning curves all while sitting at the kitchen table. Let’s share our successes and accomplishments. What did we learn along the way, what worked, what didn’t? As we begin to return to a more normal, in-person college environment, what changes will remain and how has this pandemic prepared us for our next disruptive challenge?

The link to submit session ideas will be coming shortly.

Be well,
STC Planning Committee
