Emerging from the Art+DesignLab in Cyprus, through the first conference in Paphos in 2014 and most recently at San Francisco university, iPads in Higher Education provides a unique platform for sharing experiences, engaging in debate, and inspiring new approaches to enhancing learning and teaching.
Our students expect fast and free, they expect to be able to access and engage using their phones and other devices as part of their learning and our staff expect to use devices to be proactive and creative scholars. We know more about our data and are more concerned than ever before about security and protecting our privacy in this ever changing world.
Since its introduction in 2010 the iPad, like the iPhone, has fundamentally changed our perception of mobile devices, providing us with opportunities to alter the way in which we engage students. Increasingly, new devices such as Google Pixel, Microsoft’s Surface, and mobile phone technologies have also positioned themselves as viable tools for enhancing student engagement.
The conference will explore and facilitate discourse around the role of iPads and other emerging mobile technologies in education, research, culture, and policy.

Listed by UNESCO as a world heritage site, the city of Bath is famous for its beautiful architecture, iconic sights and fascinating history, all of which attracted visitors for thousands of years. The city was founded upon natural hot springs with the steaming water playing a key role throughout its history. Lying in the heart of the city the Roman Baths were constructed around 70 AD as a grand bathing and socialising complex. It is now one of the best preserved Roman remains in the world.
The conference is hosted by Bath Spa University
