Think Tank Series: ‘How can adults in our community get the tech skills they need?’ Oct. 1

Thursday, Oct. 1, 11:30 a.m.–12:45 p.m.
UAA/APU Consortium Library, Room 307

Guest agency: Anchorage Public Library
Topic: How can adults in our community get the tech skills they need?

Think Tanks are a monthly community engagement experience in which a nonprofit agency presents a challenge or issue and attendees brainstorm solutions for the organization.

The Anchorage Public Library provides many resources and adult services. One major focus is on digital literacy for adults in our community. How can we close the gap and help adults who aren’t so tech savvy catch up as virtually every critical service has moved online? How can we help adults gain technology skills that will help them get or keep a job? How can we educate adults so they don’t fall prey to online scams? How can we help community members wade through internet resources to get reliable information as opposed to unreliable or misinformation?

Students, faculty, staff and community members–join us to assist the Anchorage Public Library and contribute your thoughts and ideas to the discussion!

Pizza will be provided by Moose’s Tooth.

Parking Note: Free parking for this event is available in the Library Lot and the East (CPISB) Garage. Please allow extra time to find parking.
