While these first steps are important, it is merely the beginning of an era of massive change for Education Technology and support services. What is required to provide services that Academics, Students and Researchers actually want in an increasingly crowded and clouded world where mobility and BYOD rule and mutli-modal learning and research is the norm?
Speakers: Angus Griffin, Manager Business Development, AARNet, and Paul Abschinski, Manager Technology Services, Homesglen Vocational and Higher Education
What motivates the Digital Native? How do they choose the institution to which they will entrust their training?

Speaker: Nick Cross, Manager Education Outreach, AARNet
