Mayberry, John; Hargis, Jace; Boles, Larry; Dugas, Alex; O'Neill, Daniel; Rivera, Ajna; Meler, Monika

Appropriate use of instructional technology can be an elusive quest for many faculty members. The iTouch is one of the latest technologies available to us, yet there is little literature on its use and effectiveness to support learners in their learning. Six new faculty members from various disciplines elected to integrate the device in their own classes, collect quantitative and qualitative data, and report their findings. The results show several innovative active learning strategies for incorporating the iTouch inside and outside of the classroom, along with perspectives on the strengths and weaknesses of these approaches, and recommendations for future use. The study serves as an exemplary model for other universities that wish to foster experiential learning among faculty. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
