The University of Southern Queensland is proud to host the 34th International Conference on Innovation, Practice and Research in the Use of Educational Technologies in Tertiary Education.

USQ is particularly excited to be hosting ASCILITE 2017 because it coincides with USQ’s 50/25 celebrations in which USQ celebrates 50 years as an educational institution and 25 years as a university.

The 2017 ASCILITE conference offers a unique opportunity for practitioners and researchers from diverse contexts and fields to come together to critically discuss, imaginatively explore and passionately debate all things educational technology and educational practice.
