Year 2: iPad Study in the DML Program
Students enrolled in the MA in DML program are participating in a two-year study exploring student expectations and experiences using the iPad.
DML faculty have been rethinking their teaching as they consider how the iPad can be used in graduate education. Assessment instruments include monthly surveys, journals, interviews, and classroom observations.
Drs. Ben Baab and John Bansavich are the DML faculty conducting the research. More information about the study can be found at http://ipad2.wiki.usfca.edu
