“This was one of the best conferences I've ever attended! Nearly every session was relevant to my work/interests, in a much more direct way than I am accustomed to seeing. I will be strongly recommending the conference to my colleagues and wish that I didn't have to wait until 2014 for the next one!”
-- Western WCSE 2011 Participant

We agree! Why should we all wait three long years to get together again?

So, building on the momentum created by the inaugural Western Conference on Science Education in 2011, we are excited to announce that the originally scheduled 2014 conference has been “preponed” to 2013.

Specifically, July 9–July 11, 2013.

Western University will, once again, host this unique conference that pulls passionate faculty, students and educational staff together across disciplines to focus on improvements in post-secondary science education. Although issues in Canadian science will be highlighted, the conference welcomes colleagues working outside the country or outside the traditional disciplines of science. Watch this website/Twitter feed for developments and deadlines.

See you soon!
