International Conference on Innovation, Practice and Research in the Use of Educational Technologies in Tertiary Education

The theme of ASCILITE 2018 is ‘Open oceans: Learning without borders’. Picture sitting on a beach and looking at the ocean, stretching before you towards the horizon, and dreaming about the possibilities, reflecting on the past, or being mindfully present in the moment. The sea is vast. This vision captures the infinite possibilities when considering innovation, practice and research in the use of educational technologies in tertiary education.
