Research Stream Ulearn12
I have been remiss in reminding DEANZ members and their colleagues of the ULearn deadline, so I persuaded the conference team to extend the call to encourage more participation.
The University of Canterbury and CORE Education have pleasure in inviting proposals for refereed papers or posters for the upcoming Ulearn12 Conference to be held in Auckland New Zealand from 10-12th October 2012. The research stream will be on Wed Oct 10.
Ulearn conferences attract upwards of 1700-2000 people every year. The audience is varied and many participants have been involved in the New Zealand Ministry of Education ICT professional development programmes which have run for 12 years and been managed by CORE Education. It is a superb way of reaching leaders in the school sector with your research.
Inaugurated in 2010 the Ulearn Research Stream aims to increase participation of the tertiary sector, particularly teacher educators, who are interested in developing and researching practice in New Zealand schools and teacher education. This includes teachers and other educators involved in research and development and/or postgraduate study. The Referee panel is actively recruiting members from all New Zealand teacher education programmes. Contributions will be thought-provoking, discuss significant issues, be forward thinking and of interest to the largely teacher audience. In addition to formally recognised researchers and consultants, teachers and other educators involved in research and development and/or postgraduate study are warmly invited to submit a proposal to the Ulearn12 Research Stream.
Please hurry and submit your proposal(s) with at title and an abstract on the ULearn12 web site: http://ulearn.core-ed.org/research-paper-guidelines
