Empower 2020 Gathers ASU IT Professional Community to Celebrate and Find New Technology Accomplishments
Empower 2020, ASU’s IT Professional Community Day, was suddenly shifted to a virtual affair, like so many other events, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. But as with previous years, attendees gathered to share ideas and still look to the future, reflecting on accomplishments while identifying the exciting work to be done. It’s no surprise that the people who were directly responsible for transitioning the entire university to a remote modality have a great deal of insight into this new way of learning, and the scope of their innovative ideas is impressive.
The empowerment of learners at all stages of life is taking on new shapes. To further that change and connect faculty, more than 250 instructors, learners and workers from across the university came together for the ASU Digital Credentials Summit, hosted by the Learning Futures Collaboratory (LFC).
