NZARE GRANTS FOR SYMPOSIUM SESSIONS AT AERA, CSSE AND BERA
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.
Dates for AERA = April 2015, Chicago (closed)
Dates for BERA = September 2015, Belfast (closed)
Dates for CSSE = May 2015, Ottawa (closed)
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.
Under the policy, the paper must have previously been presented at the preceeding year’s NZARE conference. For those applying for 2015 conferences in Canada, UK or USA papers accepted for the 2014 AARE/NZARE conference are eligible.

Proposals should be sent to the NZARE Council member with responsibility for international links, currently: Dr Cheryl Stevens Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for submissions of full proposals (see below) for 2015 conferences is 31st August 2014. The selection process will be complete (and the applicants notified) by end of September 2014. Please note that, while all symposia/papers submitted for selection must be presented at the 2014 AARE/NZARE conference, the selection process for representing NZARE at the international conferences is now separate from the NZARE Conference paper submission process.
NZARE aims to promote robust, well-informed research debate in the area of education, in New Zealand and international contexts. Thus the views expressed by symposium presenters may differ from those of NZARE as a research organization, or those of its Council; however, NZARE expects presenters to uphold the principles and spirit of academic freedom, and the NZARE code of ethics.
