Learning, Teaching & eTools Workshops

Te Puna Ako offers a wide range of workshops for either Learning and Teaching or eTools. Please register for the workshops you would like to attend. As soon as we have more than five people registered for a workshop we will be in touch to schedule a time that works for everyone. We will be using Doodle Poll to help with scheduling as this is a highly effective tool for this purpose.
If you are able to encourage colleagues to register as well, we will reach our threshold sooner and be in a position to offer the workshops sooner. If your team would all like to attend, please notify your Te Puna Ako liaison and they will be happy to coordinate this for you.
