iTech 2014: And the winner is……..

At long last we can reveal the iTech trophy winners for 2014 – Congratulations to all of you and commiserations to those who were just pipped at the post! Full details and award winning smiles are below in our iTech Awards special edition! You can also see the awards ceremony to find out who got to the final 4 in each category from our YouTube site

While you are at it, why not have a look at our Showcase website and dip into some of the new case studies? The search facility is a quick way to find a case study with a focus on a particular topic or technology, or to find out about innovative practice in a specific institution. All of the case studies are excellent examples of how staff and students from Scottish further and higher education found innovative uses of technology that offered a practical solution. www.rsc-scotland.org
