Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on the Use of iPads in Higher Education, edited by Benjamin F. Baab, John Bansavich, Nicos Souleles and Fernando Loizides.
With the widespread implementation of tablet computers in Higher Education (HE), this book will be of interest to academics from a variety of disciplines, and to learning technologists who are considering the use of iPads for teaching and learning or have an interest in mobile learning in general.
The proceedings from the 2nd International Conference on the Use of iPads in Higher Education (ihe2016) cover articles in the following areas: health, education, environmental management, fieldwork, medical education, law, teacher training and education, design, academic technologies, online assessments, and professional development.
The contributors here use a wide variety of research methodologies to investigate the use of iPads in HE, including: surveys, questionnaires, focus groups, long-term studies, qualitative methods, pilot projects, multimodal approaches, observations, technology implementation models, action research case studies, ethnographic approaches, field studies, content analysis, and mixed methods.
