The first day of ASCILITE 2017 is behind us, but we had so much fun we wanted to capture some of the action here on the blog.

We’ve done a quick grab of all the activity on the Twitter hashtag yesterday on Storify (there’s some spam in there but we’ll clean it up today).

Our photographers from USQ’s Media Design and Development team took snaps around the conference yesterday. We’re still processing photos from the end of the day, but we thought we’d share some of the photos the photographers have given us so far.

From the welcome session

We had a moving welcome to country from Uncle Wayne and storytelling from Winangali (including some dancing delegates!).

We also had an official welcome from USQ Vice Chancellor Professor Geraldine Mackenzie, President of ASCILITE Dominique Parrish, and Chair of the Organising Committee Professor Helen Partridge.

From the keynote session

James Arvanitakis had us laughing from his first words (but we learnt some stuff too!).

From the exhibition

Delegates and exhibitors chatting in the exhibition.

From the concurrent sessions

Some snaps of speakers and delegates in the concurrent sessions.

The Organising Committee hard at work

A few snaps of our team on the job yesterday.

We’re looking forward to spending today with you and – importantly – some dinner and dancing tonight.
