Effectively implementing information communication technology in higher education in the Asia-Pacific Region

Jim Peterson, Okhwa Lee, Tofazzal Islam, Matthew Piscioneri

Research output: Book/ReportEdited Bookpeer-review


Over the last two decades, higher education in the Asia-Pacific region has witnessed a greater rate of expansion in terms of new institutions and numbers of students than any other region globally. In tandem with this expansion, the use of information communication technology as a central component in the higher education sector in the Asia-Pacific region has also grown exponentially. This book documents a range of policy, pedagogy and practice initiatives from countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Australia, China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Canada and Korea. It showcases innovation and investigation, success, and, in some cases, outcomes from trials that suggest the need to rethink and even revise a number of central assumptions in the field of implementing information communication technologies in higher education.
