Repository of online resources for science and mathematics teaching and assessment, Australian Council of Deans of Science Teaching and Learning Centre

Project leaders (physics): A/Prof. Elizabeth Angstmann, Dr. Christine Lindstrom and Dr. Kate Jackson (UNSW)

This ACDS project aims to create a repository of curated remote teaching and assessment resources developed across Faculties of Science, particularly those resources that would benefit teachers and students of large mainstream subjects.

Project leaders for other disciplines:

  • Chemistry: Madeleine Schultz (Deakin)
  • Life sciences: Kay Colthorpe (UQ)
  • Mathematics: Sara Herke (UQ)

All resources submitted will go through a rigorous evaluation process undertaken by discipline experts. Resources that pass this process will be published on the web repository, with applicants receiving an ACDS certificate attesting to their quality.

To submit a resource, go the ACDS by clicking here.
