For many years IST's Professional Development Advisory Group (PDAG) has coordinated weekly professional development seminars. These seminars are brief updates about new technology, projects, tours of facilities, conference highlights, and sometimes just a fun topic about something not technical.  Most people refer to these seminars as the "IST Friday morning seminars" as they take place on Friday mornings from 9 am to 9:45 am in MC 2009. All are welcome to attend the seminars and no registration is required.

In the recent IT Task Force Report there was a recommendation to expand the membership of PDAG to include others on campus. This has already started, and it is hoped that there will be representation from all the Faculties sooner than later. At our first meeting with our expanded group, some excellent topics were suggested for the Fall term.

The schedule for September and October can be found at

If you have suggestions for future topics, or even better if you would like to do a presentation, please contact the PDAG contact for your group.

The seminars start this Friday, September 11th...
