The 2016 ReMSTEP conference
Crown Conference Centre, Melbourne 7 November

The 2016 ReMSTEP Conference aimed to look at the early impact outcomes of the many pre-service teachers programs and enhancements that made up the ReMSTEP Project, and to use that as a discussion with our stakeholders about the future of pre-service maths and science teachers education in Australia. Attendees included both pre-service and in-service teachers, scientists and mathematicians from many external science and education centres, representatives from state and federal government education bodies, and academics from multiple universities, including keynote speaker Professor Maria Forsyth.
