The MERLOT International Conference (MIC) is designed to foster learning, innovation and practice in the use of information, instruction, and communications technologies in higher education. It is the venue for educators, administrators, and technologists who have interests and expertise in technology-enabled teaching and learning and who recognize the need to remain current in this rapidly advancing field of educational practice and theory.

The MIC offers many opportunities for attendees to gain practical skills in the use of educational technologies through numerous interactive hands-on workshops led by peers and through industry-sponsored technology showcases. It is frequently in these practical workshops and demonstrations that refreshing new insights into applications of these technologies to higher education are gained.
