About the Journal
Focus and Scope
This journal publishes the proceedings from the Australian Conference on Science and Mathematics Education (ACSME) which is for tertiary science and mathematics educators to share ideas and keep up to date.
Conference proceedings encompass 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.
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 2023.
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.
Peer Review Process
We will be accepting both refereed and non-refereed papers and all refereed papers will be subject to peer review.
The conference proceedings will be published online as a single Issue immediately prior to the conference in August 2023.
