The third Sino-NZ research forum, to be held Hamilton
New Zealand in November 2015, will focus on how national agencies, provider
institutions and individuals establish stakeholder confidence in the provision
of technical, vocational, and professional education. The symposium will,
hopefully, be align to an official Chinese
ministerial visit so at the moment conference confirmed dates are still to be
formalised> However, the conference organising team recognise the need to
provide as much preparation time as possible to potential presenters. This will
enable them to “pencil in” a time-frame and prepare the presentation.
This site, focused on technical vocational education and training (TVET) pedagogical practices and applied research, has been designed using the following basic principles: preparation, presentation, practice, performance and evaluation
- Preparation: Generic conceptions of TVET pedagogical practices and applied research are presented to stimulate participants thinking and approaches to the topic to be explored.
- Presentation: After sessions have been completed, key resources used in describing, explaining and exploring topics are made available.
- Practice: Outlines of the activities undertaken and samples of templates used during the workshop are made available.
- Performance: Functionality is made available for participants to present evidence that demonstrates their understanding of topics explored.
- Evaluation: At the end of the full programme participants will complete an online evaluation of the course.
