2013 ACSME Physics Education network Discipline Day and Workshop

Dear Physics Educators,

It is time to organise the discipline day at ACSME. Can anyone who is interested in helping (even in a small way, e.g. by supplying ideas) please contact me at 

Here is some information from Luby Simpson: 

You may be aware that the 2013 Australian Conference on Science and Mathematics Education will be held in Canberra over the 19th - 21st of September.
The theme of the 2013 ACSME conference will be "Students in transition - the learners' journey".  Key ideas encompassed by this theme include the transitions to higher education in science and mathematics, supporting underprepared students and pathways from university to employment.  You can see more about the 2013 ACSME conference at its current website

The first day of the 2013 ACSME conference is designated the Discipline and Workshop Day, and I'm keen to invite the Physics Education network to host an afternoon discipline network workshop as part of program:
Tentative program:
9:00 - 11:00  Morning session - themed workshops
11:00 - 12:00  Morning tea and tour of T&L spaces/DVC-E and Dean of ESTeM welcomes
12:00 - 1:00  SaMnet Scholars Meeting/SAFFIRE display
1:00 - 3:30    Afternoon Session - Discipline network workshops
3:45 - buses to University House, ANU
