ITS BrownBags & Trainings

As part of our faculty/staff development effort, ITS hosts sessions on various technology-related topics during the fall and spring semesters. The target audience for BrownBags are primarily faculty and staff who have responsibilities for computing and technology in their department, however, all interested UH faculty and staff are welcome to attend. Our other trainings (TALENT trainings) target faculty and staff in the area of skills development with many of the workshops being at an introductory level, offering the basic skills to get started.

BrownBag Sessions for Spring 2013

ITS BrownBags presentations are typically held in Kuykendall 201 or 204 on the UH Manoa campus (unless otherwise indicated). They are broadcast live to various HITS sites throughout the UH System (based on availability) and on UH Manoa's Campus Cable channel 67. Recordings will be posted here a week after each presentation.

There is a BrownBags listing for participating HITS sites. If you would like to attend, please refer to the registration page for available sites.
