#flanz18

 

Join us..... at the biennial FLANZ conference, located at Massey University in Palmerston North. This is the premier conference in New Zealand for leaders, practitioners and professionals involved in open, distance, flexible and mobile learning across the compulsory schooling sectors, vocational, tertiary and professional development settings.

The Conference Theme is 'From Inception to Infinity: Inhabiting the multiple places, spaces and time for learning.'

We will investigate the different opportunities for learning that are emerging from the rapidly changing world of digital technologies.

Inception signifies the beginning of the journey, where we have come from. It recognises the early stages of the learning journey. Infinity simply means that we are not there yet. Where will our changing environment take us to next? How can we best utilise the different technologies to meet society's increasing need for ongoing education?

Sub themes for the conference include

  • Innovations in designs for learning
  • Equity, access, openness and flexibility
  • Emerging teaching and learning strategies, assessment models
  • New technologies and related pedagogies for learning



 

We have a fantastic selection of World Class Keynote Speakers including Professor Siân Bayne, Professor George Siemens, Professor Mark Brown, Sue Suckling and Professor Tim Bell.


We aim to provide a forum in which we can explore the fast, constantly moving environment of modern teaching and learning.

The conference showcases practice and theory in the broad field of open, flexible, distance, blended and mobile learning. We will explore how digital technologies are changing and how emerging tools can be harnessed for learning. We will look at where to next? What can we expect from those at the cutting edge in their fields? We will celebrate and share stories from colleagues and use these to help us become better educators and mentors.

We will explore the then, the now and the what next and how we can best bring it to education using the different mediums that we have available.
