Term Four Events

Today’s blog post is to keep you informed with the events we are aware of that are available in Canterbury in Term Four. If there are any others, please let us know via so those events can be added to this post. Thanks a million!

If there is enough demand, we will look into setting up a calendar of events that can be accessed via this blog. Let us know what you thing about this idea.

31 Days of Blogging

We are also still looking for anyone who would like to contribute to "31 Days of Blogging". If you would like to write anything, or if you have already written something that you are happy for us to share via this blog, please let us know via

Twitter Chats

Don't forget that there are lots of great education conversations happening on Twitter. For example, #edchatNZ is 8:30-9:30pm every second Thursday.

The next #scichatNZ chat (8:30pm, 18 October) is a collaboration with #scicommNZ about engagement and being run by two Canterbury-based educators (Matt Nicoll and Dr Victoria Metcalf).

If you strike gold in any chats or other collaboration on Twitter (anywhere, actually), please retweet and/or share this gold with the #ChchED hashtag, so the rest of us get to see it too.


If Twitter and blogs are not your thing, Gin Thorner has set up a Facebook Group to help people keep connected, collaborate, and to be aware of events.

Email us via if you would like to be added to this group.
