The OPIM Department in the School of Business offers hands-on, in person technology oriented workshops on a variety of topics of interest to the UConn community.

These workshops should provide an excellent learning opportunity, as well as a venue for the exchange of ideas among fellow members of the university. All workshops are held at the Gladstein Research Laboratory located in room 391 of the School of Business.


A workshop is an interactive, moderated lesson focusing on how to utilize a certain technology so students can walk away with a deeper understanding and potentially a new skill. A Skillshare is a subset of workshops developed and presented by our student lab specialists.
