The British University in Dubai co-organises the 7th ICASE World Conference on Science and Technology Education

The British University in Dubai (BUiD) in collaboration with Amity University Dubai, organised the 7th ICASE World Conference on Science and Technology Education which was held at Amity University Dubai’s campus from 27 – 30 March 2023. The conference brought together policy makers, curriculum developers, scientists, university researchers, teachers, and experts in related education and engineering fields to share best practice and research and to discuss the latest developments.


This ICASE 2023 edition, themed ‘STEM Education for Global Challenges and Solutions’ marked the 50th anniversary of ICASE. ICASE was established in 1973 with support from UNESCO to extend and enhance the work of its member organisations; to provide and support activities and opportunities to enhance formal, non-formal, and informal STEM education at all levels worldwide; to establish and maintain an international communication network; and to encourage and support the establishment and development of professional STEM organisations.


The conference covered areas of education policy and impact, teaching practices, and pedagogy and projects. It aimed to widen the diversity of teaching approaches and assessment techniques while highlighting the importance of education through science and technology to promote problem-solving, decision-making, and personal development of not only teachers but their students as well. The conference encouraged the rethinking of current certification and summative examination policies to enable greater attention to assessment of personal and social development of the individual through STEM education.
