Every year, AMSI Member institutions around Australia broadcast mathematical seminars, short courses and Honours and Masters subjects over the Advanced Collaborative Environment (ACE) Network, enabling students and academics to participate remotely by videoconference.

Lecturers

Honours and Masters Subjects

Are you interested in teaching over the AMSI ACE Network? We are now accepting EOIs for 2022!

We’re seeking proposals for staple and varietal subjects. Staple subjects cover topics identified as priorities, and are intended to run on a yearly recurring basis. There is no requirement that they be offered by the same institution each year. Varietal subjects cover topics of interest to the community, and you’re welcome to nominate your own.

In recognition of the hard work that goes into producing quality honours and masters programs, AMSI will provide lecturer payments of $1500 for selected subjects every year (subject to external students being enrolled post-census date, allocated to the most highly prioritised offerings).

Applications close Wednesday 3 November.

Students

 

Do you want to take honours or masters subjects not available at your university or expand your current knowledge?

You can with AMSI’s ACE Network.

Join lecturers and students from around Australia in interactive videoconference classes in the mathematical sciences. ACE subjects are free for students from AMSI Member Universities and $500 for participants from a non-member university. ACE subjects may be taken for credit with the permission of your institution.
