TERNZ 2011, 23rd-25th November 2011

This year’s TERNZ conference will be held at Victoria University of Wellington, Kelburn Campus.
Since 2002 TERNZ (Tertiary Education Research in New Zealand) has provided a forum for enquiry into learning and teaching in the New Zealand tertiary sector. It aims to support and develop a community who share a common interest in research. At a time when universities and polytechnics are under considerable external pressure to change, it provides an opportunity to step back and examine the direction in which education is moving, and the means by which practitioners might influence that direction. A distinctive feature of the conference is the emphasis on creating time for discussion and space for reflection. We aim to continue a dialogue which transcends disciplinary boundaries, and to promote further exploration of a research approach to teaching and learning.
