The iPad cohort of 2013: A multiple stakeholder view of the planning, design and implementation of a first year curriculum integrating tablets
MetadataShow full item record
In a quest to develop strategies to improve teaching and learning outcomes and student engagement across the business school, a pilot program was devised that involved the provision of tablet computers (iPads) to the 2013 cohort of business students at small campus within a multi-campus university. The pilot aims to examine the way staff and students utilise tablet technology in the learning process and how this impacts on student (and staff) learning and engagement. This nuts and bolts session provides an opportunity to present the results from the first year of the project, including outcomes, such as student and staff satisfaction, and the process experiences of multiple stakeholders. Session participants will benefit from an explanation of the detailed project evaluation regime and will participate in a discussion exploring the challenges involved in planning and designing curricula involving technology.
