ASE Annual Conference 2016 - University of Birmingham

Wednesday 6th to Saturday 9th January 2016

For four days, ASE hosts over 300 CPD science education sessions presented by teachers, leading scientists, researchers and education organisations. Throughout the conference there are lots of valuable opportunities for more informal professional and personal development through the science resources exhibition, drop-in activities and the chance to share experiences with teachers.

 "The ASE annual conference is a fantastic opportunity to share ideas and best practice in science education, as well as to learn about cutting edge research. And I was blown away by the passion and enthusiasm of the science teachers I met there. There’s a great feeling of community which springs from the common aim of inspiring children about science." - Professor Alice Roberts, ASE President 2014

Whether you teach primary or secondary, lead a department or are just starting on your training, the ASE Annual Conference is an invaluable opportunity to discover resources, enhance your subject knowledge and share teaching approaches.
