PUTTING THE HORSE BEFORE THE CART Letting Faculty Development Drive a Campus iPad Mobile Learning Initiative
This is a presentation that was done at the 2014 NERCOMP Annual Conference.
'In fall 2013, Bay Path College launched a campus-wide iPad mobile learning initiative for all incoming traditional first-year students. This presentation will describe the faculty development program that enabled a smooth launch and the highly successful integration of iPads into redesigned courses to enhance student learning. Presenters will compare Bay Path's approach to iPad integration to some less successful approaches, suggest key factors for success of mobile initiatives, and offer a generalizable framework for planning courses to prepare faculty for "technology integration" with mobile devices. The program's director and a faculty participant will contribute insights.'
