Well – it’s ‘that’ time now – time to call this conference to a close. But as we do, I’d like to pause for a moment to reflect upon the past few days and some hopes and aspirations.
Firstly, I hope you have all been…
And thanks to our excellent key note speakers who have shared their expertise in areas as diverse as
Being diverse and inclusive
Strategies for our learners
Enhancing our practice
And what the future may hold
I hope too that you’ve enjoyed the depth and breadth of workshops that have been offered
And the various sessions, which Motivated Challenged Explored new areas, and most importantly Shared
My hope is that you all leave this conference with wider, stronger, and more diverse networks than you had when you arrived.
So – Thank you to Ako Aotearoa for supporting this conference, the conference committee for all your hard work in bringing a vision to reality, and thank you to all of you – our presenters and participants which have made this a successful, collaborative event.
If you need any assistance in booking taxis, or anything else, please stop in at the registration desk, we have someone there to assist you – and if you are booked to attend the Engaging Challenging Learners workshop – this is being held upstairs above the SIT Library and we have student helpers available to help show the way.
SIT will be hosting the national conference again in 2014 and we look forward to you enjoying some more Southern hospitality and sunshine when we welcome you back to Southland next year.
I wish you all safe travelling home and now call on Koro Riki to give the Poroporoaki.
