Welcome to the New Year​

We hope you had a restful end of 2023 and joyous start of 2024.

It’s going to be another big year for ASCILITE! Our new strategic plan will be out soon so expect to hear more about that in the next few months so if you have issues/topics that you think will shape our world in 2024 and 2025 please please reach out to the senior executive (Michael Cowling, Elaine Huber, Mark Schier) to see if we can incorporate it into the new plan.

There are the TELAS workshops, the SIG webinars, the 2024 Research School and 2024 Melbourne Conference and plenty more to look forward to so keep an eye out for the biweekly Bulletin for all the latest news from ASCILITE and our MoU partners – and get involved.

2024 AI in Higher Education Symposium – Australia & New Zealand​

When: 7 February 2024
Where: The University of Sydney and online (hybrid)
More information: here
hereOver the last year, educators have been doing some amazing things with generative AI tools like ChatGPT, Bing Chat, Midjourney, Cogniti, and others. At this half-day regional symposium, we invite educators from higher education institutions across Australia and New Zealand to meet and share their creative and authentic uses of generative AI to improve teaching, learning, assessment, and curriculum. By collaborating and sharing practice, we can respond and innovate more quickly to the challenges and opportunities presented by AI in higher education.

We welcome all educators who work in higher education – lecturers, educational designers, professors, academic developers, tutors, educational technologists, and any other educators. After all, we can only address generative AI if we work together.

EDEN Annual Conference​

When: 16-18 June 2024
Where: Graz University (Austria)
More information and registration: here

The conference theme is “Learning in the Age of AI: Towards Imaginative Futures”. At EDEN 2024, we invite you to join us in a thoughtful exploration of the rapidly evolving landscape of education, as we adapt to the ever-increasing presence of AI and digital systems. Our experiences in the journey with AI are still young and can be described as stories of trial and error, so sharing our experiences, expectations and hopes is vital. The digital revolution has ushered in exciting, promising, and imaginative changes, but it is also testing our beliefs about learning and education.

More thematic fields in digital education are also open in the Call for papers tab.

ACODE Name Change​

As of their November 2023 AGM ACODE will no longer be known as the Australasian Council on Open, Distance and E-learning. Their new name is the Australasian Council on Open and Digital Education.
