The Australian Conference on Science and Mathematics Education (ACSME) will again be held online this year as there is no certainty that delegates will be able to travel to a face-to-face event.

The conference theme will be Sustainable transformation of science education. The pandemic forced us to carefully think about what a science education could look like today in order to equip graduates for the ever-changing world. By necessity, faculties of science are engaged in large-scale experimentation with online delivery, in the process discovering what works well and what doesn’t. As we emerge from this highly disruptive experience, how will we reshape science education in a way that it is sustainable and meaningful for a complex world facing numerous challenges?

ACSME 2021 will explore this theme through many lenses, and will address questions such as:

  • What cannot be taught online effectively?
  • What does real science and mathematics teaching with technology look like?
  • What is the best blend of online and face-to-face teaching?
  • How should we change our assessment practices?
  • How do we make sure that no student is left behind in this transformation?
  • How do we engage the secondary school teachers to be part of this journey?

How will you contribute to the conference? See all important dates on the ACSME website.

We promise it will be another memorable event to share good practice and discuss the latest developments relevant to the teaching and learning of science and mathematics.
