EdTechPosium 2018

Event Details
Australian Catholic University, Watson Canberra
29 October 2018 - 30 October 2018

EdTechPosium is an annual Canberra-based educational technology conference with a focus on higher education and VET.

The conference is organised by a volunteer committee with members from the University of Canberra, Canberra Institute of Technology, the Australian National University, Australian Catholic University, the University of New South Wales and the Australian Defence Force. This year will be the 10th ‘posium’ and will be hosted by Australian Catholic University at Watson in Canberra.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Design, Develop, Play!”. It encompasses our vision for diversity and innovation in the use of technology for teaching and learning. It is the recognition of the importance of pedagogy and evidence in the choice and implementation of tools and technologies, as well as the role ‘play’ or ‘playfulness’ has in higher education.

We invite academics, designers, researchers, and practitioners with an interest in creating, shaping or incubating innovative and playful learning designs, tools, technologies and experiences to join us in this growing conversation.
