Abstract

Educational applications of computer technology can be traced to the early 1970s; and since then extensive analysis, research and publication has been undertaken. One organisation active in this field since 1983 is ASCILITE, the Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education. During this period there have been significant changes in pedagogy and technology but few analyses have adopted a longitudinal approach to assess the ways in which the publications associated with such professional societies have provided guidance to the broader membership and community of practitioners. The purpose of this paper is to present an analysis of the proceedings from twenty one years of ASCILITE conferences in order to elicit the "trends, fads and futures" that have emerged from past initiatives. In doing so, the analysis provides a basis from which further research can be justified in terms of better understanding and implementing computer technology in educational settings.
