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 25 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. 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?.
