There is an array of upcoming events and new research and publications to tell you about in this newsletter. We've also added a special section on assessment updates.
The 2014 Margaret M Blackwell Travel Fellowship has been awarded to Sarah Moore, a hospital play specialist at Starship Children's Hospital. She will use the grant to investigate the application of a method known as Snoezelen to support hospitalised children and their families manage transitions between home and hospital, within the hospital and the transition from hospital to home.
The fellowship, worth $16,000, enables early childhood education practitioners to travel to study a particular topic.
We are continuing to consult on the development of a National Strategy for Māori achievement for adult literacy and numeracy. If you missed out on the first consultation round in February, you are welcome to attend two further hui:
Wellington, 6 March from 10-1pm, at Te Wharewaka (by Te Papa)
Auckland, 10 March from 10-1pm, at Te Noho Kotahitanga marae at the UNITEC campus
