Call for Proposals

We are pleased to announce Call for Proposals is now open.

The Australian Council for Computers in Education and the organising committee invite proposals for papers and presentations from F-12, preservice and tertiary educators, faculty and research students.

Authors are encouraged to address the conference theme – ImpaCT.

Refereed and non-refereed contributions are invited for the tracks and session types listed below. All proposals must be submitted online no later than Monday, 30 April 2018.

Strand 1 – High Impact Teaching
This theme aligns with practice, processes and resources that promote the best learning experiences possible for students. Explore the role of digital technologies in supporting educators developing students’ learning, problem-solving, critical-thinking, creativity and collaboration abilities.

Strand 2 – Leading for Impact
Leadership drives the individuals that make up any educational organisation. This theme acknowledges the importance of engaging people, creating a shared vision and helping people to believe in that vision. The value of research, data, digital technologies, and how these elements can drive decisions that impact school culture and quality are recognised. This theme’s focus is building capacity for effective leadership, excellent practice and sound policy.

Strand 3 – Redefining Impact
This theme focuses on illustrations of innovation and creativity in learning contexts that may redefine how we measure impact. The pursuit of excellence in education necessitates that thinking around the positive ImpaCT to student outcomes is continuously challenged. What is positive impact in education contexts and how do we know when it happens?
