Promoting Science Education & Research
The Australasian Science Education Research Association (ASERA) draws together researchers in science education from Australia, New Zealand and more broadly. It has a focus on research conducted with the goal of understanding and improving science education in a wide range of topics, levels and contexts.
ASERA conducts an annual conference for science educators, and publishes top journal Research In Science Education (RISE).
ASERA has links with international research associations such as the European Science Education Research Association (ESERA), the US-based NARST and the International Council of Associations for Science Education (ICASE). It is also linked with classroom science teachers through the Australian Science Teachers Association (ASTA) and the state and territory science teachers associations, and to the New Zealand Association of Science Educators (NZASE).
