Hello,

We are excited to announce that the third Mahara Hui NZ, New Zealand's conference for the open source ePortfolio system Mahara, will take place in April 2017. 5 April 2017 will be a pre-hui day with workshops and a hackfest style. 6 and 7 April 2017 are the conference days.

Mahara is a widely used ePortfolio system around the world, and also in particular New Zealand and Australia. School and tertiary students, teachers and lecturers, assessors for professional organisations and many more make use of Mahara on a daily basis.

Mahara Hui NZ is your opportunity to share your knowledge and experience. The call for presentation and workshop proposals is open until 30 November 2016. Please read the proposal information to learn more about the conference themes.

Mahara Hui NZ 2017 is organized by the Centre for Learning and Teaching (CfLAT) at AUT University as well as Catalyst IT, the Mahara project maintainer.

For more information about Mahara Hui NZ 2017, please visit the website, subscribe to updates on Twitter and follow the Twitter hashtag #maharahui17.

We look forward to welcoming you in Auckland next year.

Hello,

The end of the Call for Proposals for Mahara Hui in Auckland next year is coming close. You have until 30 November 2016 to put forward one or more proposals for a session.

If you are in the process of starting a new project or just have a vague idea of what you would like to present, let us know in the proposal format. We do not need a full-fledged abstract at this stage and you can refine it later on.

Submit your proposal today.

We look forward to your proposals and conference participation.

Cheers
Kristina

Hello,

Thank you very much to everyone who's already submitted a proposal for Mahara Hui 2017. We will be in touch with you shortly.

If you have not yet submitted your proposal, you can do so until 27 January 2017. We extended the proposal deadline so you can put on your thinking hat after a little break over the summer holidays.

Don't miss out on submitting your proposal. We will be reviewing proposals from now on roughly every other week to give you quick feedback and accept proposals so you don't have to wait until the beginning of February.

Submit your proposal

We look forward to hearing from you.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send us an email at info@maharahui.org.nz

Happy holidays and happy vacation

Kristina

Hello Mahara enthusiasts,

We wish you all a happy new year! Seeing that many of you will have been on summer holidays, we are extending the call for proposals one last time until 15 February 2017. You can also already register for the event.

Submit your proposal today.
And then see you in Auckland in April!

Cheers

Kristina
