ihe 2016: The 2nd Biennial International Conference on the use of ipads in Hgher Education
Who should attend ihe 2016?
The organizing committee invites and encourages the attendance of researchers, academics, students, librarians, technologists, enthusiasts, and critics from around the world. The focus on iPad use in Higher Education coupled with broad representation from academic disciplines and settings offers rich insights and examples of best practices, strategies for meeting challenges, and views of the future.
What are the benefits of attending ihe 2016?
The main benefit of attendance at ihe2016 is its concentrated focus on iPad use in Higher Education. Unlike larger higher education or technology conferences, the narrower focus of ihe2016 allows deeper, richer sharing of experiences and insights. Examples of iPad use span a multi-disciplinary, international scope, which provides cross-fertilization of ideas in a way that discipline-focused conferences may lack. The size of ihe2016 enables more personal interaction with other researchers and educators than occurs at larger gatherings. Finally, the variety of publication and presentation modes supported by the conference organizers supports creativity and increased interactivity and discussion.
