English New Zealand held a very successful PD workshop and networking event for members on 5 April. The event was hosted by Kaplan International Colleges in Auckland and attended by over 80 academic staff from our member schools - some travelling from as far as Queenstown to attend.

Sessions covered a range of topics including new ideas for reviewing, language advising for learner autonomy, creative ways to use a newspaper in your classroom, the importance of concept checking, giving effective feedback, error correction, grammar for teachers and encouraging learner autonomy.

We'd like to give a big thank you to those who presented - Victoria Mckeone, Emma Rowbotham, Katie Peckitt, Helen Curtayne, Nick Moore, Adie Pedersen, HD Waterman, and Jack Scott.

Helen Wadsworth from Pt Chev Bookshop and Resource Room had a stand at the workshop. To see the range of resources they offer please visit their website
