Possibilities – #edchatnz Conference

Why don’t you consider going to this conference with your department?

Last time (2014) this conference was awesome  – there were great presenters and fascinating learning to be had. I loved it!

This year the conference is on August 12 and 13 – Rototuna, Hamilton.

This time, the organisers are setting the bar even higher with low-cost and high-quality as simply a given. We’ll be in Hamilton at the brand new Rototuna Junior High School in August for a green event that disrupts conventional conference practice. Less sit and get, more think and do. Educators will find their tribe and be inspired to think deeper, inquire harder, and to challenge their assumptions.

#edchatNZ’s aim is to empower New Zealand educators. We believe that quality  conversations are the key to a transformative conference experience. Therefore at the heart of the conference will be our “learning tribes”. Conference attendees will be grouped in tribes and guided by a tribe mentor. This will ensure that every single participant will have the opportunity to make personal connections and to be pushed in their thinking.

I really recommend it – only $30!
