Conferences


PebbleBash 2020


With the theme of Charting new courses for learning and teaching, PebbleBash 2020 will once again have a strong focus on pedagogy, especially on learning and assessment design. Our mission here at PebblePad is to help students extract all they can from each step of their individual learning journeys. And so we are looking for submissions from the trailblazers, the innovators, and the forgers of new learning paths off the beaten trail, which tell of the journey to support, guide and develop students from induction to graduation, and beyond.


For PebbleBash 2020 we are charting a new course for our submission process. Instead of the traditional, quite prescriptive process of inviting proposals of particular formats, we would like to invite you to tell us what you would like to present, why and how. This new submission process will involve the following phases:


PHASE ONE: Expressions of Interest  (Closes 27th September) Go to the PebbleBash 2020 site to submit your EOI

  1. What you would like to present about                        
  2. How it is charting a new course for learning and teaching                      
  3. The presentation format that would best suit your story


PHASE TWO: Designing the Program (30th September - 11th October)


Based on the submissions received we will develop a two-day program that best combines the proposed topics and presentation formats. Where necessary we will liaise with submission authors to negotiate formats to design the best possible program.    


PHASE THREE: Developing the Detail (14th October - 13th December)


Once the program has been finalised, we will request further information from submission authors based on the allocated presentation format. This will include full case studies or papers for those who are keen to have their work published in the conference proceedings.                    




ASCILITE 2019


The Call for Papers is now open for ASCILITE’s 36th International Conference on Innovation, Practice and Research in the Use of Educational Technologies in Tertiary Education Conference, (ASCILITE 2019) hosted by the Singapore University of Social Sciences, Singapore, from 2 –  5 December 2019.


Complete details available at: http://2019conference.ascilite.org/call.html


Conference Theme: Personalised Learning. Diverse Goals. One Heart.


The theme of ASCILITE 2019 "Personalised Learning. Diverse Goals. One Heart." brings together the focus on the learner's needs in the use of technology and sound pedagogical practices. It recognizes the diverse motivation behind each learner in the design of curriculum and the common goal in contributing to the betterment of the global society. Singapore, being the place for people of different ethnicity, culture and religion to pursue their passion and dreams, personifies the idea of “Diverse Goals” but “One heart”. This theme also coincides with the educational aspiration of Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) that regardless of students’ goals, different backgrounds or life stages, it aims to equip them with the real-world knowledge and practice-oriented skills to excel, both in life and in their chosen career.
