Building capability in online learning and teaching through Networks of Expertise

In this issue we celebrate 25 years of online learning in NZ schools. Look out for our 25th Anniversary publication coming out soon. If you have a story to share we would love to include it!

We are looking forward to our inaugural NEX hui in the second week of the school holidays in Rotorua. It’s not too late to join us. Please register if you would like to attend – there is support for travel costs. Attending ULearn during the week? Look out for us in the conference hall at Stand 44. 

If you just can’t get away to join us in person, tune into our keynote speaker Steve Wheeler, discussing Connected Pedagogy. Other PLD, that is flexible and accessible starting during the holiday break, is OERu open course on OER & Creative Commons. This follows on nicely from the work we have recently been doing with Tohatoha Aotearoa Commons.

Read up on the activities of the NEX online community in NEX Buzz and plan ahead to join in our Virtual Cafe sessions in Term 4.
