Description

The Public Interest Technology University Network (PIT-UN) Conference on Undergraduate Informatics Education will explore how to prepare undergraduate students for careers in the public and non-profit sectors, serving the public interest, particularly in support of social justice. This 1.5-day conference will be held on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin on March 3 and 4. This conference will serve as a meeting place for educators across disciplines, uniting around a common goal and vision. The conference will help to define what undergraduate education for public interest technology looks like. The conference will also showcase how individuals affiliated with member institutions can best leverage their involvement in PIT-UN, as well as showcase the benefits of PIT-UN membership to individuals that are not yet one of the participating PIT-UN institutions. To learn more about best practices and pedagogies for undergraduate informatics education, to learn more about public interest technology, and to learn more about PIT-UN, we encourage you to attend this first meeting in a series of events sponsored by PIT-UN and what we hope will become a recurring conference.
