Geeking out with iPads: Undergrad instructors discuss their experiences
Alison Link (graduate student in PsTL's Multicultural College Teaching and Learning MA program) provided a poster presentation, "Geeking out with iPads: Undergraduate instructors discuss their experiences during the first year of a large-scale tablet initiative," at the AACE eLearn conference in Montreal, Canada. Link represented PsTL and CEHD at the conference, presenting on the various approaches PsTL instructors took in learning to use and integrate iPads into undergraduate-level courses.
Link worked with two other graduate students -- Alfonso Sintjago (OLPD) and Mary McKay (PsTL) -- to code interview data and conduct a qualitative analysis highlighting the ideas and innovations, as well as concerns and frustrations instructors raised during the first year of this tablet initiative. This is a rich look at what it takes to get this kind of initiative off the ground, with good lessons to share with colleagues from across the globe. See more on the CEHD iPad initiative.
