There will be a 3 day on-campus workshop held at Massey University in Palmerston North, New Zealand. This will build on the knowledge you’ve gained on the course through small group teaching, practical sessions and discussions of experiences in your own practice.
The contact workshop is an opportunity for face-to-face time with your class and lecturer. Together you can build on the knowledge you’ve gained on the course through small group teaching, practical sessions and discussions of experiences in your own practice. The new format also provides a great opportunity for you to meet students and staff from other courses within the MVM programme by combining with them for some sessions.
For the best contact workshop experience we recommend that you attend in person. While attendance is highly-recommended it is not compulsory in order to pass the course. If you can’t make it in person you will be able to join some (non-practical) sessions live via the internet (we endeavour to record these sessions for review, but are unable to guarantee the quality of the recording).
The contact workshop will be running between 20-22 June 2017
