On Saturday, March 8th, the SU Division of Student Development, University of Washington Division of Student Life, and the Seattle University Student Development Association were proud to host SATech Seattle, a conference centered around technology in student affairs and higher education.  This event attracted over 40 students and professionals from more than 7 institutions in the Northwest region to talk about current issues and practices surrounding technology and social media.

At an “unconference,” the sessions are not pre-determined.  Through a facilitated process, the group decided on the following discussion session topics at the event:

There was also a lively Twitter back-channel discussion throughout the day at the hashtag #SATechSEA.  The best part about an event like this is that the discussion is still going on on social media, so feel free to engage at any time using the Twitter hashtags #SAChat and #SATech!
