ascilite 2014, Dunedin, New Zealand
The 2014 ascilite conference is due to take place in Dunedin, New Zealand at Otago Polytechnic from 23 – 26 November 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
