Early birds for CCA-EDUCAUSE Australasia conference 2011

CCA-EDUCAUSE Australasia conference is on again in Sydney this year: 3-6 April 2011 at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour. CCA-EDUCAUSE conference is organised by CAUDIT, CAUL and ACODE and the focus is on information technology in higher education.

This conference is attended by a range of professionals working in the higher education sector:

  • IT practitioners and managers
  • Teaching and learning technology practitioners and managers
  • Librarians and knowledge managers
  • Developers of information technologies and services for higher education

Theme for 2011 is: The game has changed

"The game has changed for information technology in higher education. Fundamental shifts in learning and teaching, research, resources, and technology mean we’re not using the same rules or playing fields anymore. According to some leading thinkers, the very survival of the university is on the line if we're not able to adapt.

What game changers do you see in your organisation? What are the new rules and who are the players? What do we need to do to adapt? And what things remain constant, no matter what the external appearances of transformation?"

Early Bird registrations close on 3 March.

Keynote speakers include:

Bryan Alexander – Director of Research at NITLE. Emerging technologies, mobile and wireless computing, digital gaming, social media.

Shirley Alexander – Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Teaching, Learning and Equity) at the University of Technology, Sydney. Professor of Learning Technologies.

Richard Katz – Consults on strategy, technology, and assessment issues with universities, governments, and corporations worldwide.
