Latest news from your conference committee
PSYCHOLOGY CONFERENCE 2021
– We are postponing not cancelling
Kia ora e hoa mai
Your conference committee has unfortunately made the tough decision to postpone the 2021 Psychology Conference which was due to be held in November.
The committee's preference is to hold a face-to-face conference to maximise participant engagement and overall experience, which is the reason for the decision to postpone rather than move to a virtual format.
We are keen to get your feedback for preferred dates and preferred venue ( to be held in 2022). Please help our planning and fill out this short two question form with your preferences. https://forms.gle/j5i8Yp62nNJgjzbM7
Please note, you will still be able to apply for the ‘subject association grant’ for other opportunities in 2022. If you have already been granted pre-approval for the Psychology Conference you will receive a communication from PPTA directly with additional instructions.
We wish you all a healthy and safe term 4, and we are really looking forward to seeing you in the first half of 2022. Oh, and keep an eye on your inbox for our Term 4 newsletter - we've got some ideas brewing.
A special mention to our members in Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland: We think you are fabulous. Kia Kaha.
Ngā mihi nui
Your NZAPT committee
After what was a year of ups and lockdowns, we are super excited to be able to meet face to face once again with our colleagues across the nation on Auckland’s North Shore. Massey University (Albany) are hosting us this year and our speaker line-up is looking fabulous.
With a focus on current research, indigenous psychological practices and real world applications, along with the collegiality that comes from sharing of good practice, we hope conference this year will not only be insightful, it will also give you some wonderful tools to use in your own classroom practice.
There is no registration fee for the conference, and if you are a PPTA member and need help with travel and accommodation, a reminder that this is eligible for the PPTA Subject Association grant (up to $700).
We look forward to seeing you all in Auckland for what will be a fantastic two days of professional and personal development. The dates for conference are: 18-19 November.
So, what are you waiting for?
