This paper highlights key ideas from a review of the research literature on ways in which contemporary learning technologies are influencing teaching and learning experiences in higher education. The diverse ways in which students and professors connect, communicate, collaborate and create knowledge for learning and teaching both on campus and in blended and online learning spaces are explored. Promising and emerging practices from the research literature and the implications for faculty members, leaders and higher education institutions of learning are discussed. Challenges for higher education as teaching and learning undergoes change are described.
