OBJECTIVE

The primary aim of the conference is to bring together an international group of researchers and practitioners to encourage and support the development of a new framework for better understanding the dynamic and interconnected nature of education, research, business, and life in the information age. When it takes a mere few seconds to find information about almost any topic, researchers and practitioners need to consider the implications of instant access to information in our traditional system of instruction and assessment.
