The 2023 ASCILITE Conference will take place from December 3 -6, 2023, hosted by the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, NZ.

The conference will cover a gamut of technologies in tertiary education with a variety of themes to appeal to all our attendees.

This year’s event is designed to be hybrid so the learning never stops, whether you are online or at the event.


About the venue

This year the conference will be hosted at Te Pae – the new convention centre in the heart of Christchurch. 

Christchurch and the Canterbury region as a destination has a lot to offer – from lush vineyards and wild coastlines to sky-piercing mountains and pristine glacial lakes. Canterbury is a region of remarkable contrasts and a haven for those seeking incredible scenery and adventure.


Keynote Speakers

We have some fantastic keynotes and invited speakers organised. More to be announced soon!

ASCILITE 2023 – Online

ASCILITE 2023 will be fully hybrid, where the online experience will be supported by a complete virtual platform. This specially designed conference platform will enable a fully immersive experience for all participants (both online and face-to-face).

The platform supports a seamless interaction between in-person and virtual participants through a range of features – including timelines for session selection, Q&A with speakers via chat, conversations with attendees, sponsors and exhibitors. Presenters will be able to present in-person and virtually through the platform, or if a time zone did not permit, via a pre-recording of their presentation. Recordings of all the sessions will be available for on-demand viewing just hours after they take place.
