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).
