eSTEeM brings together STEM academics to promote innovation and scholarship.

The emphasis of the conference will be to showcase the current work of eSTEeM and related areas whilst stimulating active participation, reflection, discussion and debate on wider issues relating to the future of STEM scholarship within the rapidly evolving higher education landscape.

Much of our work centres on the effective use of learning technologies at scale aimed at improving the student experience - our portfolio of projects includes work on e-assessment and feedback; mobile learning; teaching practical science and engineering online, the use of virtual learning environments and international STEM distance learning. We welcome partnerships and are already working with universities and other agencies both within and outside the UK to help develop a distinctive and influential STEM agenda.

As a delegate to the eSTEeM conference you will meet with University colleagues to exchange ideas. Invited speakers will bring a range of perspectives and expertise to our agenda, new curriculums, technologies and opportunities.
