Technology has become an integral part in virtually all aspects of education, broadly covering curriculum planning, content development and delivery, communication among learners, instructors and institution, assessment and programme evaluation. The International Conference on Technology in Education (ICTE) aims to serve as a platform for relevant academic exchanges across higher education institutions, focusing especially on sharing of good practices and results from studies.

We sincerely welcome administrators, teaching staff, researchers and persons involved in higher education to participate in this event. ICTE 2015 is co-organized by Caritas Institute of Higher Education (CIHE), the Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK), and the School of Professional and Continuing Education of the University of Hong Kong (HKU SPACE).
