The theme references the most significant landmark of our region, the Waikato River. Rivers are powerful forces, relentless and enduring, giving and sustaining life: Tributaries, big and small, come together to create a diverse and connected system that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Libraries are also powerful forces, and like rivers, they must be respected, understood and well-managed in order to continue to nourish and support their communities.
Participate in this conference to consider the role and future of our libraries and the kaitiakitanga (guardianship and management) needed to ensure that libraries, and the benefits they bring, are strong and enduring.
The ULearn conferences are organised by CORE Education, a not-for-profit educational research, development and implementation organisation in New Zealand.
Always an inspiring conference for the latest in educational theory and practice, particularly in relation to the integration of ICT into educational contexts.
