The 2014 ascilite conference offers a timely forum for leaders, practitioners, and researchers to reflect on and discuss the state-of-the-art and the state-of-the-actual, exploring the visionary rhetoric on educational technology and debating the imperfect reality of current educational practices. We warmly invite contributions describing critical perspectives on:

  • Emerging technology practices (e.g., MOOCs, OERs, virtual reality, mobile learning, games or gamification)
  • Institution-wide technology integration (e.g., implementation of digital strategies)
  • Focus on research evidence (e.g., impact-focused methods such as educational design research, inquiry and action research, and experimental studies)
  • Technology-enhanced learning design
  • Learning analytics
  • Educational technology and society
  • Role of learning theories
