The ELF11 theme weaves two strands together:

*Exploring new ways of learning and working
*Engaging education professionals in positive change processes


Education leaders have to meet the shifting needs of young people in today's recessionary environment. Leaders face the challenges of attracting and retaining quality teachers, grappling with new assessment or funding regimes and bringing about learning culture change to meet changing expectations.

Making New Zealand a place where talent wants to live and work means bringing about a step change in the education system to reflect today's intertwined worlds of learning and working.

ELF11 explores new ways of working and learning and demonstrates the powerful methodology of Appreciative Inquiry as a constructive way for leaders to engage education professionals in positive change processes.

e-Learning is a dominant strand in the conference. Themes include:

  • Facilitating the learning and feedback dimensions for educators and learners of Web 2 networking and resource sharing.
  • New media Understanding the transformational impact of new media on learning.
