The Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, 4-7 December 2005

In 2005 we are focusing on issues of Balance, Fidelity and Mobility and maintaining the momentum in the world of innovative teaching and learning. A key aspect of the ASCILITE mission is the integration of educational technology as driven by teaching and learning alignment and need. We believe that an important and sometimes hidden aspect of the issues today are those of work/life balance, pace of change and the sustainability of our efforts, resources, people and the scholarship of educational technology.

The role, place and significance of technology in contemporary society and its educational environments has been central to the work of scholars, practitioners, students and managers.
The theme of ‘Balance, Fidelity, Mobility: Maintaining the Momentum?’ expresses our intention that conference papers and presentations will provide the opportunity for exploring our future options for sustainability of our efforts, resources, people and the scholarship of educational technology.

Emerging issues for educational institutions as a result of the increased deployment of technology enriched environments include the concepts of:
a) Balance a dynamic construct across many interrelated issues such as Student Expectations/Demands; Staff Life/Work; Approaches to Pedagogy/Technology; Efficiency/Effectiveness; Cost/Benefit; On/Off campus environments

b) Fidelity often difficult to achieve in modern educational environments where blended and distributed learning, telecommuting, work-integrated learning are commonplace. The scholarship of teaching and its place in contributing to scholarly practice and quality learning must explore the social, intellectual, emotional, physical and occupational dimensions of these issues.
c) Mobility the deployment of mobile devices in educational settings brings a plethora of emerging issues onto the horizon e.g. technological advances, internationalisation, boundaries and censorship, accessibility in its broadest sense and new continua for engagement in learning what are/will be the impacts and considerations?

We invite you to consider ASCILITE 2005 as an opportunity to present and publish your research and development work.
The conference is designed to acknowledge and recognise innovative exploration of the demands on people, society and environment in relation to future knowledge, developments and practices which contribute to the maintenance of an evolutionary momentum in the field of educational technology.

Call for papers

Adopting program planning principles similar to those used for ASCILITE's
highly successful Conferences in 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001 (and 17 previous years),
the 2005 Conference invites submissions for Program activities in three
categories which we believe will provide a well balanced blend - full
papers, concise papers and workshops.

All submissions will be refereed in order to obtain consistently high
academic quality, with innovative, original contributions to research,
development and practices in teaching and learning, ranging over all areas
of interest to the Society and its members. A further purpose, in the cases
of full and concise papers and with particular reference to authors working
in Australian universities, is to qualify, where appropriate, for DEST
recognition of the work in the research publication category "Conference
publication". The Conference will also make a number of Outstanding Paper

proposals and workshops is 24 June 2005.
