We welcome submissions on any topics that relate to teaching innovation and technology at ANU.
Please re-submit the form if you have more than one proposal.

Showcase in the Atrium (20 November)
A choice between displaying printed or digital posters, and demonstrating TEL practices in the Hedley Bull Atrium – you may request a dedicated space or room if needed (e.g. VR demonstration).
We are seeking 200 word abstracts for either a poster or demonstration describing what would be included in your showcase. Posters are a visual representation of a project, initiative, or approach to teaching and learning while demonstrations involve a more hands-on or real-time presentation of a tool, technique or approach. There will be a dedicated showcase session in the TELFest program and you will need to be available to discuss your work with attendees during the session. Once accepted, further information about the showcase session will be circulated.
You could showcase on a range of topics relating to technology-enhanced learning, including:
- A new technology, tool or technique that you have applied in your course design
A new strategy or approach you used in your practice
Research you have conducted on your teaching
Showcase digital resources or online spaces you have created
Student-created resources (with permission)
