For the online learning world


Answering the Call!

Do you have a story to share? Doing something new and fun in the edtech sector? Using Moodle or H5P in an unusual way? Do you have a distance or blended classroom case study you want to share? Ever use HTML or CSS to spruce up a course on your LMS and want to share? Have a thought about how to use social media, podcasting, reflective blogging, and/or location-aware content in your future training delivery?

It sounds like you might have a conference proposal in you!

This is a good time if you’re in New Zealand or Australia (or looking to visit!) and you want to share your ideas in edtech; there are at least three Call for Proposals (CFPs) open.

You’ve probably already heard the NZ Moodle Moot Call for Proposals is open. This year, the conference will include an H5P Mini-Conf, which sounds extremely exciting. Are you an H5P enthusiast? Come share your experiences! The New Zealand Moot is always entertaining and informative.

The EdtechPosium Call for Proposals is also open. This year’s theme is “Place, Purpose, Possibilities”, and they have a page with suggestions around that theme at their site. Their CFP is open until August 5th. EdtechPosium is a great conference with a real community feel. And they’re very supportive – this would be a good conference to give it a go if you’re a first time presenter.

Finally, the Call for Papers for ASCILITE 2019 is open too! I’ve always wanted to attend ASCILITE. I often watch the tweets out of that conference and there are exciting ideas presented there. Don’t let the formal sounding “submit a paper” dissuade you. This is another community of people interesting in sharing ideas and hearing about your experiences in edtech! You got this!

Upcoming Asia Pacific Moots…

MoodleMoot Australia will be held in Melbourne on July 1 to 3. This is soon! Do you have your tickets booked?

The above mentioned MoodleMoot New Zealand will take place in Auckland from October 1 to 3. We are very excited about this one!

…and other Elearning/EdTech Conferences

The 2019 National VET Conference will be held in Brisbane on September 12 & 13. This one I’m attending for sure because I’ll be presenting “What to Consider when Selecting an LMS”. I’m looking forward to NVC 2019, it’s quite the show if you’re in the Vocational Education sector.

EdTechPosium, which I’m sure you’re preparing your CFP for right this minute, will be held in Canberra on October 28 & 29. Check out the keynote speakers; yes Martin is going to be there.

The 2019 Eportfolio Forum will also be held in Canberra, on November 20 & 21. You will want to look into this one if you’re a Mahara or other Eportfolio user.

ASCILITE 2019, for those using educational technologies in tertiary education, will be held in Singapore on December 2 to 5. This year’s theme is “Personalised Learning. Diverse Goals. One Heart.”
