Conference 2016 - University of Otago - 30 November - 2 December

HERDSA New Zealand, TERNZ Conference 2016


In 2016 the TERNZ Conference will be held in Dunedin

Since 2002 TERNZ 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. It also 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.

To find out more about TERNZ it may be useful to browse through the archives of previous TERNZ conferences.

HERDSA provides support for tertiary researchers and the annual TERNZ conference will move each year to one of the main centres.




The organisers gratefully acknowledge the generous support of
Ako Aotearoa in making the conference more accessible to delegates.
