Make a real difference.

The Education for Diversity Symposium is an opportunity for academics/educators, students and clinicians who intend to become educators to meet and network with like-minded people from across the Asia Pacific region. The symposium will be a source of inspiration, and provide an occasion for the development of new connections and innovative partnerships.

It is hosted by AUT University and Otago Polytechnic and is held the day after the APOTC, on 18 September 2015, at the Rotorua Energy Events Center.

The programme delivers an exciting programme of contemporary issues in education: inter-professional education; technology; cultural diversity and occupational justice. It aims to provide you with new ideas that will renew your energy about promoting educational reform. Come and be part of a dialogue that will enable you to make a real difference to your students.
Education Symposium topics include:

  1. Interprofessional education and collaborative practice: how can occupational therapy educators prepare graduates to work with diverse professions.
  2. Promoting occupational justice, inclusion, and participation: embedding learning about human rights within occupational therapy education.
  3. Educating for cultural diversity.
  4. Technology for diverse modes of learning: using educational technology for distance, learning styles and sustainability.

Only $57.50 per person (includes lunch).
