Informing Science Research
consists of study in various locations on the transmission of information across time and across space. Connect
focuses on the interrelationship between context (historical forces and culture) and information and knowledge transfer.
InSITE: Inform solicits papers in any area that explores issues in effectively and efficiently informing clients through IT (information technology).
InSITE: TeachIT focuses on research topics related to teaching IT, including curricular issues, capstone courses, pedagogy, and emerging topics in IT.
InSITE: TeLE focuses on research topics related to using IT to teach. For example, these topics include e-Learning, m-Learning, making classroom teaching more effective, and distance learning.
You can attend all or just part of the conference.
