Annual Conference

The Annual ascilite Conference has been a fundamental aspect of ascilite since the Society was first formed. The conference provides a forum for:

  • The presentation of refereed full papers
  • The presentation of refereed short papers
  • Workshops
  • Symposia
  • Poster sessions.

The conference is a time to meet with peers and educational technology industry representatives to exchange ideas and information. The conference also provides memorable opportunities for social interaction.

Sponsors add a critical dimension to the conference through product displays, presentations and engagement with the academic community. For those companies interested in finding out about sponsorship opportunities associated with the Annual Conference please contact the .

ascilite 2014

Decades of research and development work in educational technology has revealed gaps between the promises of digital technologies and the concrete impact on teaching and learning practices.

The 2014 ascilite conference offers a timely forum for leaders, practitioners, and researchers to reflect on and discuss the state-of-the-art and the state-of-the-actual , exploring the visionary rhetoric on educational technology and debating the imperfect reality of current educational practices. We warmly invite contributions describing critical perspectives on:

  • Actual uses of emerging technologies and practices (e.g. MOOCs, OERs, virtual reality, mobile learning, games or gamification)
  • Institution-wide technology integration (e.g. execution of digital strategies)
  • Research evidence (e.g. impact-focussed methods such as educational design research, inquiry and action research and experimental studies)
  • Learning design and technologies
  • Learning analytics
  • Educational technology and society
  • The role of learning theories

The History of ascilite Conferences

The first three conferences held were CALITE conferences. Queensland hosted these conferences in 1983 and 1984 and Melbourne in 1985. The first ascilite conference was held in Adelaide in 1986 and an ascilite conference has been subsequently held every year since except for 1990. In 1990, the ascilite conference was subsumed under the World Congress of Computers in Education, Sydney, where ascilite hosted a strand called CBT 90.
