ACSME 2021 online

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.

For more than 26 years ACSME conferences have brought together educators from around the country and beyond, to share good practice and discuss the latest developments relevant to the teaching and learning of science and mathematics. ACSME is a strong community of university teachers, educational researchers, tutors and students who share the joy, successes, disappointments and challenges of science and mathematics teaching at university level.

We promise ACSME 2021 is going to be another memorable event!

Conference theme: 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?
