hosting flanz2021 satellite hub

Day one of the FLANZ conference has seen some fantastic presentations from a range of academics around NZ and AUS. We have had two brilliant keynotes from Asha Kanwar and Derek Wenmoth, with another keynote by Gilly Salmon tomorrow.

Later today we will have our director Cheryl Brown presenting her work on Tertiary Students’ perspectives on the cost of textbooks. Tomorrow we have two students from the lab, Himasha Gunasekara presenting on Creativity in practice- Instagram as a divergent thinking tool in creative education and the recently graduated Carolyne Obonyo presenting on PhD thesis work – Re-Visioning Teaching in Initial Teacher Education Using Mobile Technologies.

DeFL is pleased to be hosting a satellite venue for this conference. We are the only hub for South Island! We have greatly enjoyed engaging with colleagues from the mainland coming together to discuss and share.

Looking forward to tomorrow, for more opportunities to learn and connect!
