I’m trying to compile a list of resources for organising online conferences:
- How do we ensure that online conferences feel like events?
- From exclusive conferencing to community building – facing the challenge of the climate crisis
- The challenges of face-to-face conferences
- Making Online Meetings Just & Sustainable
- The post-covid future of virtual conferences
- Post-pandemic conferences: academic networks and changing conference spaces
- What’s it like to move from organising face-to-face conferences to organising conferences online?
- Rethinking training for a pandemic: a case study of a social media bootcamp
- Is hybrid a desirable new normal for academic events?
- Cultivating a virtual conference community
- How to run engaging academic conferences online
- A manifesto for online meetings
- Why feminist frameworks matter for organising online conferences
Here are resources which are relevant without being related to online conferences:
- Inclusive conferences – we can and must do better
- Running a nearly carbon neutral conference
- Medievalists with disabilities accessibility guidelines
- Tips for responding to British CfPs as an international scholar (and how to organise a more globally inclusive conference)
- Welcome to ethical ed tech
If you have suggestions could you share them in a comment and I’ll add them to the list? I’ll eventually make this into a padlet unless someone has a better idea about how to make this list a bit more interactive, including allowing people to add comments attached to these individual pieces.

This is a wonderful resource, I’v been sharing widely with staff and student – and beyond university, if not come across before
Ethical Edtech – https://ethicaledtech.info/wiki/Meta:Welcome_to_Ethical_EdTech Why Ethical EdTech?
Much of what passes for educational technology is designed for purposes of profit-seeking, surveillance of students, and user lock-in. Other kinds of technology exist, but they typically lack the marketing and sales budgets of competing vendors. This is a directory, created by and for higher-ed educators, for sharing tools and use-cases. We believe that education can be a critical site through which to transform the broader tech industry and the cultures surrounding it.

“Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.” Richard Shaull (foreword to Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed)
“Education is the point at which we decide whether we love the world enough to assume responsibility for it, and by the same token save it from that ruin which except for renewal, except for the coming of the new and the young, would be inevitable.” Hannah Arendt (The Crisis of Education)
“it is impossible to imagine a future unless we have located ourselves in the present and its history; however, the reverse is also true in that we cannot locate ourselves in the present and its history unless we imagine the future and commit to creating it” (Anna Stetsenko, 2015).
“Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something is worth doing no matter how it turns out” Vaclev Havel
