Event description
The inaugural national Hui for members of NEX, the national network of expertise for online educators.

About this Event

This is a full day event, focused on exploring themes of relevance for any educator currently engaging in the provision of online learning in New Zealand. Whether as a teacher, leader, eDean or researcher we extend a warm welcome to those who want to connect with others in their field.

Renowned expert in the field, Steve Wheeler will be our keynote (via Video Conference) and will support activities leading up to, during and subsequent to the event.

Particular themes of interest will include:

  • Connected Learning
  • Developing the learner
  • Focusing on the Future
  • Learning Design
  • Knowledge Building
  • Languages Online

The day will run in a fluid, unconference style with participants forming groups around themes that interest them. Many of these will be driven by registrants in the weeks leading up to the Hui.

A key outcome is to build relationships and connections with like minded educators.

There is no charge for this event and NEX members may have their travel paid (up to $500) for by application using this form. We will keep this budget open until it is used so registrants are advised to get in early.
