ASCILITE stands for Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education has been hosting its annual conference each year in the first week of December. There is a cult-like following each year where we met up with old pals. I met people like Stephen Downes many years ago at ASCILITE.
This year, the theme is "Who's Learning? Whose Technology?" and will be held in University of Sydney. The paper submission is due end of this month (Monday 31st July 2006 at noon, Sydney time). Those outside Australia please note that Australia East coast is +10 hours GMT, so treat the deadline as Sunday!
From the conference website:
The theme encourages you to confront one or both of these questions. (We recognise that most members of ascilite are free spirits and you will do what you want anyway. But linking to the theme will give you an edge in getting a place on the program.) [my emphasis]
