PATT27 in Christchurch 2013
2 - 6 December 2013
Hosted by College of Education, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand
Conference venue: Chateau on the Park google maps
Technology Education for the Future- A Play on Sustainability.
Kia ora Koutou.
We are now on the final countdown to the conference. Thank you very much to those of you who have registered. We have a wonderful group of almost 80 delegates from all around the world coming to Christchurch. I am looking forward to catching up with old "PATT family members" and looking forward to meeting and welcoming new members to the PATT family.
I was delighted to have confirmed that the Honourable Steven Joyce, Minister of Science and Innovation, Minister of Tertiary Education and Minister of Economic Development will address our conference on Thursday morning. I think this is indicative of the high profile of Technology Education in New Zealand and a tribute to the numerous internationally recognised researchers who are attending the conference.
At this time of the year, although it is summer our weather can be very changeable so please bring clothes and be prepared for weather from 9-29 °C. I suggest dressing in layers is a good idea for those of you who tend to feel the cold.
Travel Safely. See you soon.
Nga mihi nui
With best wishes
