n a world of ubiquitous mobile devices, the iPad has become the dominant large-screen device. This popularity is reflected among both students and faculty on college and university campuses. Is the iPad just the latest tech gadget to capture the imagination of the education market or are there real educational gains to using it? How can iPads improve instruction both in and out of the classroom? How can they enable scholarship and improve productivity? By examining examples of how faculty in NITLE’s network of small liberal arts colleges and beyond have used the iPad, this talk will suggest ways faculty members can best engage the iPad for teaching and learning.
