About the Journal

The Australian Conference on Science and Mathematics Education, ACSME 2023 is an opportunity for tertiary science and mathematics educators to share ideas and keep up to date. Science and mathematics for this conference encompasses biological sciences, chemistry, geosciences, health sciences, information technology, learning and cognitive sciences, mathematics and statistics, molecular and microbial sciences, physics and psychology as well as the various fields of the applied sciences.

For more than 28 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.

It is exciting to announce that the 2023 Australian Conference on Science and Mathematics Education will be held at the Sandy Bay campus of the University of Tasmania and online.

The Conference will be held 30 August – 1 September.

ACSME 2023 is an opportunity to share ideas and gain new insight into how you can contribute to the changing climate of science education.

2023 ACSME theme: The changing climate of science education

The theme alludes to the rapidly changing environment in which educators from all STEM disciplines operate, with disruption caused by the pandemic exacerbated by rapid technological change. While this has provided many benefits, there are also new challenges including academic integrity, equity and the rise of generative artificial intelligence and its impact on our students and teaching practices. The theme also alludes the role of STEM educators in building knowledge and capacity about climate change and sustainability more broadly.

Where better to explore this year’s conference theme and other issues impacting higher education in STEM than Tasmania?

We look forward to welcoming you to Hobart in August 2023.
