ATLAANZ Conference 2011. Wellington Institute of Technology, New Zealand.

The convenors of the 2011 ATLAANZ conference invite colleagues who are interested in presenting a paper/workshop/poster at the conference to submit an abstract outlining the key aspects of their presentation. This might include background/rationale; an outline of the study or intervention etc; the methodology and key findings or outcomes and the implications for practice and/or transferability.
Where possible, authors should try to connect their proposed contribution to the conference themes and/or the work of learning advisors. The theme of ATLAANZ’s conference this year is ‘Navigating the River’ of tertiary Education. This is a reference to the Hutt River, which runs near to Petone, Wellington and through the Hutt Valley.
ATLAANZ is particularly interested in supporting first-time presenters and providing a platform for those at the start of their academic careers, as well as showcasing the work of more experienced contributors. To this end, the convenors are happy to enter into dialogue with those who would like feedback on their proposal prior to making a final submission.
Attached are ATLAANZ’s ‘Call for Papers’ document for 2011, which outlines the specifics of the theme and a ‘Conference Registration’ form. Further details can be found at
