Earn essential CTS RUs at ISE

If you hope to get extra value out of ISE 2020, education is the place to go. AVIXA members can utilise their time at the show to earn their valuable renewal units (RUs) toward their Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) accreditation

AVIXA’s core Conference offering includes the Higher Education AV Conference and the Enterprise AV Conference which give attendees 4 RUs each, whilst the 20-minute free FlashTrack sessions give you 0.25 RUs. 

For the first time, delegates can also earn RUs at ISE’s plethora of conferences on offer, earning anywhere from 4 to 8 RUs toward your CTS renewal.

CTS holders need around 10 RUs per year to count towards their 30-renewal unit target every three years. That means, if you attend an AVIXA half-day conference, an ISE conference and just four FlashTrack sessions, you could earn 9 RU points or more in one week! That’s a pretty good way to start the year. 

Here are some of the education opportunities on offer at ISE 2020.

AVIXA Higher Education AV Conference

On Tuesday 11 February, the AVIXA Higher Education AV Conference – supported by EUNIS and SCHOMS, and chaired by Gill Ferrell, leader of EUNIS – will highlight a range of different perspectives on how to best enhance the learning and teaching experience through effective use of AV technologies. 

Amongst the sessions, Alistair McNaught, Independent Consultant, will show how the accessibility of AV for learning can be enhanced using current technologies and bring the needs of disabled learners sharply into focus. Also new to this year, Dom Pates, City, University of London, will speculate on the future use of holographic technology for academic purposes, and what needs to be done in order to make this a reality.

AVIXA Enterprise AV Conference

Taking place on Wednesday 12 February in the RAI, Room E102, AVIXA Enterprise AV Conference – held in association with AV User Group – will highlight the importance of data analytics within AV and explain how data insights help to deliver greater workspace and meeting efficiencies. Delegates will hear examples of how analysing business interactions through email, IM, collaboration tools and in the meeting room itself can be used to determine better workspace design, system design and ultimately provide more efficient and user centric work and meeting space. 

Peter Smit, Founder & CEO, Collabogence, will take the first session, looking at how to use big data to measure ROI of collaborative performance. In a further session, Jonathan Mangnall, Director U-Topia technologies, Utelogy, will highlight a real-life case study of how a global technology firm was able to inform its collaborative technology decisions with effective management and monitoring.
