For over nine years, the Annual Campus Academic Strategies and Technology (4CAST) event has drawn faculty together in January to examine how learning technologies can be leveraged to engage students, to make connections between instructors and support staff, and to identify educational potential in new technology.

This event is hosted and organized by ITS Office of Teaching, Learning & Technology and the University of Iowa Libraries.
