The Distance Learning Office offers a range of student and staff events and workshops throughout the year to support teaching and learning at a distance. We also alert students and staff to upcoming events from other areas of the University, particularly courses and workshops from the Student Learning Centre, HEDC, the Library, and the Graduate Research School.

This page is updated regularly, and information will be added as we source events and workshops that relate to distance teaching and learning.

Student workshops and events

Distance Learning workshops

Distance Learning supports students around New Zealand and the world by having regular Study Days in specific regions. Students can attend in person or join via zoom. The main aims of the day are to provide information to help with questions relating to the academic nature of study. There is also an opportunity to make connections with other students like yourself studying by distance.
