AustMS/AMSI Teaching Seminar Series

The AustMS/AMSI Teaching Seminar Series is a nation-wide seminar series featuring talks and discussions about any matters related to the teaching of the mathematical sciences in universities.  The seminars are held online using Zoom videoconferencing software, allowing broad access by Australian academics. The seminars aim to engender discussion and foster best practice in mathematics and statistics education at Australian universities.

For more information, contact the organisers:

A/Prof Rowena Ball (
Dr Anthony Morphett (

We would love to join forces with already-established seminar series, colloquia or discussion groups. If you are keen to share with the maths community, or if you have ideas for future topics and speakers, then please get in touch.
