Delta is the Southern Hemisphere Conference on the Teaching and Learning of Undergraduate Mathematics and Statistics, which began in 1997 with a conference in Brisbane, Australia, and are held every two years. The conferences have been held in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Argentina.
The Delta conferences attract an international audience of academics interested in mathematics and statistics education, including disciplinary specialists, education theorists and tertiary education practitioners across the sciences and engineering.
A special issue of the International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology (IJMEST) contains papers from some of the presenters.
A guest lecture by Em.Prof. Carmel McNaught at the University of Melbourne, 12pm-1:30pm on Tuesday 28th April. Further details available here.

International Collaborative Writing Groups 2015
As part of the ISSOTL 2015 Conference hosted in Melbourne Australia, colleagues are invited to apply to participate in a year-long international collaborative writing group.
There will be eight groups, each of which will prepare and write an article during 2015-16 on a pre-selected topic about SOTL (the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning) for submission for publication. Each group will have seven members chaired by a facilitator familiar with the chosen topic. Ideally each group will include one student member.
The groups will work at a distance to prepare a 2000 word outline for online discussion running up to an ISSoTL pre-Conference workshop. They will meet in Melbourne for the two and half days preceding the start of the main conference (Sunday, Monday and Tuesday 25-27 October 2015) during which they will spend time preparing their draft paper within their group and in discussion with participants of other groups.
Following the workshop the groups will have five to six months to complete and send in their papers for submission to the Society’s international SOTL journal, Teaching and Learning Inquiry.
What are the topics of the 2015 international collaborative writing groups?
Scholarship of student employability – Scholarship of work and practice-based learning – Scholarship of inclusive teaching and learning – Scholarship of assessment in the digital age – Scholarship of the flipped classroom – Scholarship of the student learning process – Scholarship of supporting new academics in teaching and learning – Scholarship of researcher development.
