Call for student volunteers now open!

Are you a current student enrolled in tertiary education? Are you interested in being a student volunteer at ASCILITE 2017?

We're looking for current students enrolled in tertiary education to take on the role of student volunteer at the ASCILITE 2017 Conference in Toowoomba this December.

Volunteers will support the organising committee with the running of the conference. This may include working on the registration desk, aiding speakers and session chairs, directing and helping delegates, documenting the event using multimedia, recording short interviews, liaising with venue staff, and other activities as required.  Volunteers will also have the opportunity to attend some conference sessions.

There are many different benefits in being a student volunteer at ASCILITE 2017. Volunteers will:

  • have the opportunity to become involved in the conference operations and gain insights and experience in running a large event
  • contribute to the positive conference experience and generate a encouraging energy
  • have the opportunity to meet key thinkers and scholars in the field of higher education and to build your professional network
  • receive a complimentary three day registration to ASCILITE 2017 ($575 total value)
  • gain professional recognition including a certificate of participation
  • receive a conference T-shirt (to be worn at the conference).

We are looking for volunteers who

  • are outgoing and willing to learn
  • have excellent communication and organisation skills
  • are willing to meet new people and work collaboratively with the conference organising committee
  • are interested in having fun! 

Applications close Monday 11 September.
