We could tell you it was 3 fantastic, stimulating days of networking with colleagues and learning about the latest trends for IT in higher education. We could tell you it was in Hobart, Tasmania’s harbour capital, a provocative mix of history, contemporary art and culture, and beautiful natural surrounds. We could tell you it was the 20th anniversary of the first EDUCAUSE Australasia conference in Hobart.
We could tell you these things, but you can see for yourself. Watch this video from the 2013 event in Hobart and find out what you can expect.

Are you experimenting with an innovative technology at your university? Is it something you’d like to show to other universities? Maybe it’s a way to manipulate views of internal organs in 3D, a 3D printer, or lights powered by foot traffic.
At THETA 2013 we’ll be offering a University Innovation Showcase to celebrate these efforts and spark new ideas. You bring along a technology you’re experimenting with and someone to give a demo. The conference will provide a space in the exhibition, power, a wired Internet connection, a large display screen, a half day in which to show it off, and secure storage when it’s not on display. Assistance with shipping costs may also be available on request for accepted proposals.
Please send a brief description of what you’d like to show, along with the name and contact details of the person coordinating the demo, to email@example.com by Tuesday 12 March.
Calling anyone with a video camera and something to say about information technology and higher education. Prizes of a $200 voucher – choice of iTunes, Amazon, David Jones, or Red Balloon – for the 10 best vox pops submitted to use at the conference.
The conference theme is The Edge of the World, and to illustrate different aspects of this theme we would like to create and screen video clips prior to and at the conference composed of a series of vox pops.
It’s a great way to have a voice at the conference. The deadline has been extended to Mon 4 Mar 2013. More details here.
Thanks to everyone who contributed a submission to the conference. We had an outstanding response. The reviewers are busy looking at them all so we can notify presenters by the end of November.
You can continue to enter poster submissions any time up until 21 February.
While you’re waiting to hear from the Program Committee, why not register for the conference? We’ve opened registrations early so you can register in 2012 if that suits you better. See the registration page for more details.
If you missed yesterday’s deadline for putting in a proposal, but you’d still like to put something in, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you’d like to talk about.
We received a large number of submissions, but we don’t want you to miss out on being able to share your story at the conference.
Wondering what to put in your abstract? There is no one right way to write it, but if you are putting in a presentation about a project you’ve completed or one that you are working on, one way to structure the abstract is to answer the following questions:
- What is the problem you are trying to solve?
- What approaches did you consider?
- What approach did you select and why?
- Who is involved?
- What happened — what worked and what didn’t?
- What did you learn along the way?
The Participate page has details about the information to provide for each session type and the selection criteria. Mainly we’d like to see interesting, engaging sessions that are about technology in higher education.
We’d still like to hear from you!
Did Douglas Mawson flinch at exploring new territory in the Antarctic? Did Shackleton? Did Amundsen or Scott? No they did not.
There is a first time for every great challenge. For going live with a new system, for changing your model of service delivery, for opening up to new collaborators, for presenting at a conference.
If you’ve never given a talk at a conference before, why not start with THETA 2013? We know you have great ideas and you’re doing something innovative at your university and we’d love to hear about it. If you’ve had a spectacular failure we’d love to hear about that too. We’ll provide support for presenters, from sending you resources on how to prepare your talk, to connecting you with a mentor to provide advice and help you practice. There’s no better way to meet colleagues in Australia, New Zealand, and around the world who are working on the same things you are.
Hurry because the closing date to put in your proposal is Mon 22 Oct. See the Participate page for more information. If you have any questions, just send us email at email@example.com and we’ll walk you through it.
The Call for Participation is now open. Are you exploring new territory at the edges of technology in higher education? Join us at the conference and tell your colleagues about it.
Submissions are due by 22 October. More information is available here.
