Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education

Strategic Relationships

ASCILITE typically forges two types of relationships to extend its global reach and promote its brand and activities; Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) and Mutual Endorsements.

1. Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs)

The first type of relationship is with like-minded associations via a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). These MOUs typically enable ASCILITE members and members of like-minded associations to:

  • Engage in international activities and initiatives of mutual benefit;
  • Collaborate on and share pedagogically driven technology-supported learning, teaching initiatives and research to promote evidence-based practice;
  • Access certain member benefits offered by affiliated organisations, e.g. conference rates;
  • Connect with and participate in existing professional networks and foster working relationships across  international communities of educational practice;
  • Initiate sustainable joint activities with practitioners outside of Australasia to develop and disseminate knowledge, expertise and experience related to the aims of the affiliated organisations; and
  • Support the development of learning communities around learning technologies, research and practice.

ASCILITE currently has MOUs with EDEN in Europe, ALT in the UK and ACODE in Australia.  You can view these MOUs here:

2. Mutual Endorsement

The second type of relationship is via a reciprocal arrangement for mutual endorsement. ASCILITE’s minimum criteria for mutual endorsement are as follows:

  • Event or activity is facilitated by a credible provider;
  • Promotes research, trends and uses of educational technologies in tertiary education;
  • Gains prominent exposure for ASCILITE;
  • Boosts ASCILITE membership or conference registration and attendance;
  • Creates opportunities for members to connect, network, develop, recognise and share professional knowledge, expertise and practice;
  • Promotes an ASCILITE SIG or community of practice;
  • Enhances the credibility of ASCILITE among target groups; and
  • Contributes to the financial sustainability of the Society
