Art, visualisation and the cosmos in education

There is one week to go to register for the Art, Visualisation and the Cosmos in Education symposium on December 5-6 at Deakin Downtown, Collins St in Melbourne. This features presentations on astronomy outreach, data visualisation, astronomy teaching and learning, and the role of practising artists working with astronomers. The event is designed to allow lots of room for discussion of the links between science, education and the arts.  Registration for the event closes the morning of Dec 2.


Deakin University invite you to submit an abstract and participate in this symposium.

Given that in some parts of the world people may be resurfacing after holidays, we have decided to extend the abstract submission deadline to the 25th of October, 2019.

When: 5-6 December 2019
Where: Deakin Downtown, Melbourne Level 12, Tower 2, Collins Square, 727 Collins Street, Docklands VIC 3008

The combination of perspectives from art and science are increasingly acknowledged as powerful approaches to both fields, and to education and public outreach. These interdisciplinary innovations reflect new understandings of the role of visualisation in science knowledge building and learning.
This symposium aims to bring together a heterogenous group of researchers, scientists, teachers, artists and educators from around the world to discuss ideas and practical applications of combining art and science through representation and modelling, visualisation, big data, and virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), both in traditional classrooms and informal learning settings such as planetariums.

Abstract proposals deadline extended until may be submitted until 25th of October, 2019.
