DTTL iPad Study

Drs. Ben Baab and John Bansavich concluded their research on iPads in the DTTL program this spring when they presented their findings at the first International Conference on iPads in Higher Education, in Paphos, Cyprus, March 20-22, 2014.

The two-year study looked at faculty and student use of iPads in the DTTL program (2011-2013). The study explored student and faculty expectations and experiences using the iPad. Assessment instruments included monthly surveys, journals, interviews, and classroom observations. More information about the study can be found at and the findings are available here.
