Exploring the latest developments in the technology and pedagogy of higher education, Technological Advances in Interactive Collaborative Learning presents information technology-oriented educational programs for the next generation of scientists and researchers. It highlights the importance of technology, pedagogy, and management in the higher education ecosystem.

With a focus on technological innovations, the book explains how Web 2.0 technologies can enhance collaborative learning and how immersive learning environments and mobile technologies can improve the learning process. The text then describes novel pedagogical and methodological approaches that underpin the technological advances, facilitate collaborative learning, and enable the efficient use of games. The book also covers managerial aspects and best practices through case studies and examples.

Drawing on the work of longtime researchers in computational science and e-learning, this book shows how interactive collaborative learning can help scientists and researchers acquire the multidisciplinary skills to understand and use complex mathematical models, high performance computing, and other advanced technology necessary in today’s interconnected, data-rich world. It will also help computer scientists and engineers create easy-to-use and research-friendly systems.
