IARU EdTech Horizons Workshop
was held on 13
November 2014 at the National University of Singapore. The main objectives for this workshop was to :-
provide IARU members opportunities to discuss trends, opportunities and challenges in using technology for teaching and promoting student learning;
create collaborative communities among IARU to foster continued discussions on new EdTech advances; and
facilitate joint work among IARU members to implement innovative technology enhanced education projects.
Guest speakers were invited to provide overview and outlook on the new technology enhanced education trends and to spark discussions on some key EdTech themes.
Code of Conduct
The code of conduct is for many students to know hoe to behave in the class. There will be no compromise for late-comers and tardiness will not be enteratined.
The presentation slides, photo gallery and a video of the presentations are now available on the IARU EdTech Horizons Workshop website

Having similar IARU EdTech Horizon Workshops annually or on a biennial basis will build on the momentum gained at this inaugural event. It is also possible to share experiences gained through educational technology innovations and implementations at IARU through an online platform.
The EdTech Horizons Workshop organizing committee wishes to thank IARU for facilitating this workshop. All delegates and guest speakers found this workshop timely and useful.
The DOCC can be used as a means of collaborating, sharing resources and information among IARU members.
It may be a good idea to explore the Distributed Open Collaborative Course (DOCC) model by offering joint courses among IARU institutions. There was interest in leveraging on Yale’s DOCC model by developing an IARU DOCC on faculty development, for example. Such an effort will also spawn education research enriched by learning analytics.
