Call for Abstracts

The call for abstracts has now closed, thank you to everybody who made a submission. We will be notifying authors on the outcome of their abstracts shortly

The conference will be hosted online on the 29th and 30th June by The Open University, UK.

To support the conference aims of Making Connections, Innovating and Sharing Pedagogy, the conference committee welcomes theme-based submissions in any STEM subject area. The intention is to provide opportunities where teaching innovation and pedagogy might be shared with all STEM colleagues, or where more subject specific discussions might ensue, these will be of interest to a range of STEM disciplines. In each case, the conference is all about making connections and we would particularly encourage abstracts from early career academics.  We also welcome international contributions that explore any of these themes. 

We are inviting abstract submissions for oral presentations, workshops and posters that address the following conference themes.
