June 2 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

researchED comes- at last!- to New Zealand

The international conference community of educators arrives in Auckland with a fantastic day featuring some of New Zealand’s most interesting and important voices in education, with guests from abroad. researchED days are committed to burying edu-myths, raising evidence literacy in the teaching profession and beyond, and creating powerful conversations between anyone affected by the evidence eco-system.

Whether you are a teacher, a principal, a trustee, a teaching assistant, parent, policy maker, academic or researcher, come along to listen to some of the greatest, latest and most useful ideas emerging in education. Absorb, question, ask questions, challenge and be part of the conversation. Our audiences are drawn from all sectors and stages of education, and so too are our speakers. We hope you can make it.
