The Tipping Point

The conference theme, The Tipping Point, reflects that magic moment when innovations in the use of information technology cross a threshold and spread like wildfire.

Explore how technology, information and education specialists are shaping and influencing the tipping points for technology enabled higher education; learn who’s working on the edges; find out more about the ideas, trends and social norms that move around our institutions that dramatically change uptake and optimisation of new approaches and practices around technologies; discover how networks and collaborations accelerate unconventional ideas and encourage broad scale adoption of innovative solutions.
