Next TENZ Conference

TENZ 2019 Conference will be in Auckland

We will post more information about the next conference later this year.

TENZ/ICTE 2017 Conference

8-11 October 2017

This conference combines the national biannual Technology Education New Zealand (TENZ) conference with the 12th biannual International Conference on Technology Education (ICTE) conference. The hope is that the outcome will be a dynamic cross-cultural mix of perspectives about a range of elements of Technology Education.

Coincidentally, in 2017, both of these organizations will be celebrating 20 years of existence, so there will be some celebrating to do.
