ASCILITE 2023 Conference On Now!​

Kia Ora from Christchurch!

As you read this, around 300 ASCILITE members will be finishing up their first day of our ASCILITE 2023 conference, organised by the University of Canterbury. Although I’m writing this on Monday morning, it’s already looking to be an amazing event, with some great pre-conference workshops on Sunday, and of course delegate drinks as well!

I’m really looking forward to a great week spending time with some of you, and if not this year then perhaps at ASCILITE 2024, or during one of our online / regional events during the year (more on those soon!). And of course also our conference dinner, with the theme of ‘Old Skool’.

I really look forward to connecting with you all and engaging with our members in 2024. But in the meantime, if you’re one of those members in Christchurch, greetings; if you’re virtual then online greetings; and if you’re not here this year then keep an eye on the website (2023conference.ascilite.org) and the conference social media for more updates.

Have a great week ASCILITE-ers.

Michael Cowling (ASCILITE President 2024 – 2025)

Invitation to attend NZ TELAS discussion​

Over the next 12 months we will be holding stakeholder discussions on how the TELAS framework aligns with higher education providers in New Zealand.

We will begin this work at the annual conference in Christchurch with a session and then we will have further discussion during 2024. We plan to finalise this work before the 2024 conference. The initial NZ TELAS discussion at the conference will be held on Tuesday 5th December from 1:30 to 2:30.

If you work in NZ higher education or have an interest in this area, please feel free to come along. If you can’t attend this session please register here to receive updates on this initiative. If you cannot make the conference session but are interested in participating, please reach out to us via the TELAS Admin email [email protected]

We look forward to seeing you there!

Contextualising Horizon 2022–2023​

ASCILITE is excited to announce the release of Bringing Australasian Technology and Practice Trends into Focus: The 2022–2023 Contextualising Horizon Report. The report features analysis and insights regarding the outcomes of the ASCILITE’s Contextualising Horizon initiative and this year’s top trends:

  1. Hybrid and flexible learning
  2. Artificial intelligence literacy
  3. Mental health and well-being
  4. Evolution of mobile learning
  5. Integration of Indigenous knowledges

Beginning in 2022, ASCILITE community members and affiliates came together to consider the forces impacting higher education and the technologies and practices likely to be of significance. The research team – Chris Campbell, Hazel Jones, Danielle Logan-Fleming, and David Bruce Porter – extend their appreciation for all who have been involved over the past year. They especially wish to thank the report contributors for helping to make the report possible.

Now entering its third year, Contextualising Horizon aims to generate discussion around the issues and challenges in the Australasian tertiary sector and to identify the educational technologies and practices likely to make and impact.
