With the invasion of technology, tertiary sector is witnessing its own transformation. Blended learning, the combination of traditional face-to-face teaching methodologies and online learning, has emerged as the new Holy Grail among educators. The method has been repeatedly shown to improve students’ motivation and engagement, and ultimately, produce higher academic outcomes.
In recent years, the race to adopt blended learning has been intensified as more and more elite universities around the world start to integrate and expand the use of digital teaching in their academic offerings. While the pressure to improve teaching qualities with digital pedagogies is substantial, there has been an agonizing lack of empirical evidence on which blended learning model is the most effective.
To help you stay ahead of education trends and maintain your competitive edge in both local and international education market, Clariden Global welcome you to the Digital Campus and Blended Learning Innovation: The New Era of Teaching and Learning Conference in Auckland, this 27th – 29th November 2017.
With a respectable line-up of speakers from reputable local and international institutions, this conference will provide educators with essential strategic and technical knowledge to facilitate your digital transformation. You will understand the requirements for learning facilities to cater to the needs of your students, learn to address challenges in professional training for academic staff, explore evidence-based blended pedagogies, and utilize new technologies to create a truly student-centric learning experience. The conference will bring forward case studies from institutions across New Zealand, as well as from other parts of the world, allowing you to gain insights into best practices and bench mark your institution’s progress against industry leaders.
Do not miss out this opportunity to lead the academic revolution at your institution! We look forward to welcoming you to this eye-opening event.
Following the success of the Australian edition of the conference in July, we will be bringing the conference to Auckland with a stellar line-up of high profile speakers including:
- David Parsons, National Postgraduate Director, The Mind Lab by Unitec
- Mira Peter, Senior Research Fellow, Wilf Malcolm Institute of Educational Research

NZHA, in association with History at the School of Humanities, University of Auckland, is pleased to announce its biennial conference: 29 November – 1 December 2017, to be preceded on 28 November by a Graduate Day, an evening talk for conference attendees at Auckland Museum, and other pre-conference events.
Tāmaki Herenga Waka: where histories meet proposes two main thematic lines – one acknowledging the core business of NZHA, the other the conference location:
Aotearoa – New Zealand: This theme calls attention to Aotearoa New Zealand history. We note that the New Zealand Journal of History reaches its 50-year anniversary in 2017, so we hope the conference encourages reflection on 50 years of New Zealand history, and 50 years more to come.
Tāmaki Makaurau – Auckland: This theme is interested in Auckland broadly defined, and urban spaces more generally, including Tāmaki Makaurau; Auckland as a crossroads, a hub, a point of departure and of arrival; Auckland of many histories and many peoples.
We anticipate several other themes and subjects will dovetail with, enrich, and cut through these two main thematic lines: tangata whenua, Pasifika, and Asian histories; academic history, including its current state and status; public histories; transnational histories; gender; teaching history; and much more.
November 29 (Wednesday) 9:00 am - December 1 (Friday) 5:00 pm
