The CAR Symposium

Each year the Contemporary Approaches to Research (CAR) in Mathematics, Science, Health and Environmental Education Symposium focuses on practical and theoretical aspects of a range of research methodologies. They follow the highly successful symposia held annually from 1993 to 2005, and again from 2010 in which methodological approaches and issues – such as cross-cultural perspectives, activity theory, capturing complexity, classroom video analysis, quantitative methods, and interviewing – are discussed in a lively, informal setting.

 

We welcome methodologically focused presentations from colleagues (including HDR students) and we typically organise themed sessions where short presentations are followed by a longer discussion that ranges across each.  The CAR Symposium is a two-day event usually held in November.  Keynotes (often international scholars) start the program each day and a social event is held on the middle evening.
