Just A Bit Outside
It’s time to take a look at what’s happening in the higher education space as it relates to the AV industry. Joining us this week is Director of AV Services for the University of Arkansas Ernie Bailey, Director of Client Services for Bates College Scott Tiner, Assistant Director of Multimedia Services for Drexel University Rob Rasberry and HETMA’s DEI Chair Natalie Gillespie.
Xilica has become a Gold Partner of HETMA. While we parse out what exactly it means for a solutions provider to be a “accelerator of technology development and adoption,” we discuss what it means for more companies like Xilica to be involved with organizations within the higher education sphere.
Next, we take a look at the Sphere at The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas. For AVNation we’ve covered this particular space in some of our shows, and most of those within in the industry are acutely aware of this project because of how it defines what AV is capable of. We have a similar conversation, and consider the possibilities from an educational standpoint for both students and technology managers themselves.
Zoom is calling their workers back to the office. Disregarding the irony of a collaboration software company asking their employees to meet in the physical space, we look at the potential pushback of remote learning and working. Now that we’re “post-pandemic”, will we see the pendulum swing back for other companies and even campuses?
