2024 ACSME theme: Belonging: the centre of the student experience

How are our students changing and what are their priorities? Since COVID, we have seen a shift in the way students experience university and an increased desire for individualised pathways. We need to ask ourselves how we are responding and whether we are meeting students’ needs. The conference will explore contemporary approaches to teaching and learning in the post-COVID world.

Peer Review Process

We will be accepting both refereed and non-refereed papers and all refereed papers will be subject to peer review.

Publication Frequency

The conference proceedings will be published online as a single Issue immediately prior to the conference in September 2024.
