Dates: Monday 22nd April to Wednesday 24th April 2013 Venue: The University of Waikato, Hamilton
The Moodle Moot conference in New Zealand is rightly regarded as one of the best in the world - a great professional development event, well organised, but with a genuinely collegiate and friendly atmosphere. Please take a moment to read the organisers welcome, especially relevant if this is your first NZ Moodle Moot.
The biggest single factor affecting the success of a Moodle Moot is the quality and variety of presentations. Remember, you don't have to be an expert to share your knowledge! Practical experience and helping others is just as important as presenting research and academic content. The database below is for adding presentations that you can offer - everyone can add Comments and Rate ideas, and this will help us finalise the programme. Acceptance of proposals will be made during March/April and are selected to provide an overall balance of the programme, and to ensure there is 'something of value for everyone'.
Submissions are now closed. Thanks to everyone for such a high-quality and varied selection! If you haven't had an email confirmation then unfortunately there wasn't quite enough space for your idea. However, you can add your idea to one of the "Open Spaces / Show & Tell" sessions
You can help make other aware of the New Zealand Moot this year by using one of the following social-networking tools:

The main conference is Tuesday 23rd and Wednesday 24th of April 2012. The conference is organised into three 'tracks' - technical, teaching, and 'other'. You are able to swap between these different tracks throughout the conference (excluding Monday workshops).
Workshops are 9.30-3.30 on Monday 22nd April - lunch is included. This year we have four full day practical Workshops / Labs available on Monday 22nd April (lunch included). Places for Workshops usually fill up very quickly (and have limited space) so please book these at the time you book for the conference. You can read about each of these workshops below.
There are two main social events, the reception 'drinks and nibbles' after the Monday workshops - to which everyone is invited - and the conference dinner - a great chance to relax and network with others.
The full conference dinner details are in the registered attendees only area.

Moodle Moot 2013 will take place in the MSB building, The University of Waikato. Teresa Gibbison from the Waikato Centre for eLearning (WCEL) is the venue co-ordinator. The WCEL team have several areas of responsibility, one of which is to provide eLearning leadership and representation within the tertiary sector and other external communities on behalf of the University. We look forward to welcoming, sharing and learning from existing and potential Moodlers from across all education and business sectors.
There is plenty of parking at Waikato so travel by car is the best option. For those staying in the city there are two bus routes that stop on the University campus. The Orbitor also stops outside the Uni and of course travel by taxi/shuttle is another option.
If you are driving we suggest you park via Gate 10, Silverdale Road.
Hamilton is a fast-growing, multicultural city situated on the banks of the Waikato River, New Zealand’s longest river. The city’s warm and welcoming spirit, rich history and contrasting splendours await many a visitor.
