ASIS&T Asia-Pacific Regional Conference

Effective Learning in Low-Tech Information Environments


3 – 4 January 2019


University of Cambodia Phnom Penh, Kingdom of Cambodia


Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) will be holding its Asia-Pacific Regional Conference 2019 from 3-4  January, 2019 at the University of Cambodia in Phnom Penh, Kingdom of Cambodia.

About the Meeting

A low-technology or low-tech information environment is one with relatively unsophisticated technological development or equipment. For example, many institutions operate in areas with little or no Internet access or operate in infrastructure-light but mobile-heavy environments.

Even with rapid developments in technological infrastructure in many parts of the world, low-tech information environments persist for many reasons. For instance, institutional cultures and mindsets simply do not support organisational changes in information technology; the push for greener and healthier information practices may sometimes favour low-technological environment; or the lack of infrastructure or resources may render organisations and institutions to adopt adaptable and often low-tech solutions.

This regional conference will focus on effective learning in such contexts. We are interested in (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • Learning in low-tech information environments across different organisational contexts
  • Case studies of information worlds, cultures, social dynamics, and access from the Asia-Pacific region
  • Green information systems and learning
  • Implementation of high-tech information and technological strategies in low-tech environments
  • Pedagogical approaches, models, and theories for effective learning in low-tech environments
  • Learning in formal and informal low-tech settings
  • Strategies and challenges for learning in low-tech information environments
  • Evaluation and assessment of learning in low-tech environments
  • Research methods, ethics and implementation of learning in low-tech environments
  • Innovation of learning in low-tech information environments
  • The future of learning in low-tech environments
