NZARE has arrangements with the American Educational Research Association (AERA), the Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE), and the British Educational Research Association (BERA) in which these organisations allocate a session at their annual conference each year for symposium presentations that represent—and are supported by—NZARE.

The main purpose of the NZARE sessions at international conferences is to showcase examples of the best of recent New Zealand research and/or scholarly work in education. The sessions also allow the presenters to establish and build international linkages to support their ongoing research programmes.

NZARE provides financial assistance of up to $3,000 to each team of presenters.

Current NZARE members are invited to submit proposals for a symposium, or, in the case of CSSE, a paper (or two linked papers), on a completed research project (or linked projects) that was carried out in New Zealand, and that is likely to be of interest to an international audience.
