How will technology change the nature of tertiary teaching and learning in the next ten to twenty  years?
What are the challenges of changing delivery and uptake of education for existing institutions?

The Innovations in Tertiary Education Delivery Summit 2014 has been arranged in order to provide an opportunity for key decision makers and influencers, from across New Zealand’s tertiary education and business sectors, to engage with the challenges and opportunities offered by new forms of tertiary education delivery that are enabled through technological change.

The Summit is running over 5 and 6 June at the Auckland Museum. ITES2014 will include a mix of presentations from world-leading experts in new techniques and methods for delivering tertiary education, and participant workshops that will allow delegates to fully immerse themselves with the issues in this exciting field.
