People, Partnerships and Pedagogies



The 2023 ASCILITE Conference, hosted by the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, NZ, took place from December 3 to 6, 2023. Thank you to all who attended; we look forward to seeing you all in 2024.


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.
