Electric Dreams - 2013 ascilite conference, Sydney Australia, 1-4 December

The Great Debate

In what is becoming an ascilite tradition, our great debate will see two teams led by Prof Shirley Alexander and Assoc/Prof Gregor Kennedy square off against each other. Stay tuned for more information!

The topic: "that the dream of technology-assisted learning has been realised".

Are we there yet? Not quite? Maybe we made it, but it's turned out to be more nightmare than dream!?

Each speaker will have 5 minutes to present their case.
