#ASCILITE 2018 Conference Call for Participation is now open
The ASCILITE 2018 Conference Organizing Committee is pleased to announce that the Call for Participation is now open.
The theme for the conference is Open oceans: Learning without borders. Picture sitting on a beach looking at the ocean, seeing the horizon stretch out before you as you dream about the possibilities, reflecting on the past or being mindfully present in the moment. The sea is vast. This vision captures the infinite possibilities when considering innovation, practice and research in the use of educational technologies in tertiary education.
Accordingly, you are invited to submit conceptual, applied and theoretical research contributions on eight conference streams that you will find at the link below which also contains the Submission Guidelines:
Call for Participation:
All submissions must be made via EasyChair by midnight on Friday 13 July 2018 (AEST).

2017 ASCILITE SIG Survey – please respond!
You are invited to participate in an anonymous 6 – 8 minute survey designed to ensure that the SIG is relevant to you and other members. The survey will also help ASCILITE and SIG leaders such as myself better understand your needs within the SIG.
The survey has been vetted by the leaders of each ASCILITE SIG who are all keen to know what you think.
You will find the survey here and we do hope that you can find a few minutes to complete it.
We would very much appreciate if you could complete the survey by 25 October 2017 as we will be closing the survey that evening at about 8pm.
Once we have tabulated the results, we will make them available to the ASCILITE Executive Committee, all SIG leaders, on SIG websites and in the ASCILITE member bulletin for SIG members to view.
Thanks very much for your time.
Thom & Vickel.
