MWC Teacher Professional Development Days 2023

Start Date July 24th 2023

End DateNovember 15th 2023

venueKaitaia, Whangārei, Auckland, Christchurch, New Plymouth, Rotorua


We are delighted with the speakers we have for this year, and they are all keen to meet with you as part of the MWC’s Teacher Professional Development Programme! 

These workshops bring together some of New Zealand's leading scientists to present up to date information tailored to NCEA and the national curriculum. Their stories, knowledge, and PowerPoint resources will inspire us as learners and be helpful in our teaching.

The day will be packed with learning, and if we have time during the day, we can discuss how best to incorporate the curriculum changes in a Q and A session.

These workshops are free to attend for all who can come. Morning tea and lunch will be provided too. You will receive further information regarding the venue before your selected workshop.
