Impressive turnout at ascilite 2010



11 October 2010

Our faculty's research strength in the area of learning and technology was on showcase this December when nearly a dozen student and academic researchers presented their work at the prominent learning and technology conference of The Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education (ascilite).

This year, our researchers were involved in nine different presentations, and lead two different symposia, all on topics as varied as video-based learning, pre-service teachers technical knowledge, pedagogical design and virtual worlds. Much of the work converges around the faculty's dedicated learning and technology research centre, CoCo, and represents cross-faculty and cross-disciplinary work into what ways new technologies can be used to support and enhance learning across the disciplines.
