ASCILITE 2020 Conference Online 30 November

The ASCILITE 2020 Conference will be the organisation's first online. This is hosted 30 November and 2 December by UNE. This will be my first ASCILITE and I am an author on two joint papers: 

  1. A collaborative design model to support hybrid learning environments during COVID19 by Cochrane, Birt, Cowie, Deneen, Goldacre, Narayan, Ransom, Sinfield & Worthington (Day 2, Session 4, Stream A, 11:30AM).
  2. A mobile ecology of resources for Covid-19 learning by Narayan, Cochrane, Cowie, Birt, Hinze, Goldacre, Deneen, Ransom, Sinfield and Worthington (Day 2, Session 4, Stream C, 11:30AM).
These have been scheduled for parallel sessions at the same time at the conference. Normally this would involve a sprint down the corridor (in  some conference centers this might be half a kilometre and up several floors). Online it should be a couple of clicks, or as there are so many authors we can just divide up).

This is my first ASCILITE (I did attend a concurrent program at ASCILITE 2019 Singapore). The one and only time I submitted a paper previously, the reviews were so witheringly condescending that I gave up the whole idea of submitting a paper, or attending. The reviews of the joint papers this time were much more positive, indicating the fault was not with the reviewers, but my previous authorship. ;-)

The practice at face to face conferences is to keep on to time, not start early, so people can catch a specific presentation. However, I like the idea that you pick a session and have to stick with it. With four parallel steams this can be difficult. Here are my picks:
