Tuesday, 10 July 2018 to Saturday, 14 July 2018 from 5:30 PM - 5:00 PM

The University of Sydney - The Abercrombie Business School, Darlington - Sydney, Australia


The program will commence on Tuesday evening July 10 at 5:00 pm with a plenary lecture followed by a welcome reception. The Wednesday will be a joint session with the CONASTA conference, [secondary school science teachers], with the balance of the program over the rest of the week devoted more to tertiary education, finishing at midday on Saturday 14 July.

The format of the program will be the normal talk scenario but will also involve many "hands on" workshop sessions. There will be poster sessions on the Wednesday and Friday evenings.

The conference dinner will take place on Thursday 12 July 7:30 pm at the Doltone House on Darling Harbour.
