Latimer Conference Centre, Christchurch. The 2015 theme was Creating
a Greater Christchurch - Sketching the Bigger Picture.
Videos, Slideshares, Media and Feedback
2015 forum was the fourth forum in an annual series involving representatives
of public, private and community sector organisations and interested
individuals engaged in the re-building of Greater Christchurch in the
wake of the earthquakes of 2010-11.
Christchurch is at a tipping point as it moves into the 5th year of
a largely top down disaster response and recovery process. The countdown
has started for the transition from centralised control to much more
distributed local ownership of issues and solutions.
The forum connected the dots on a broad canvas and fill in the bigger
picture of recovery and renewal as rebuild momentum gathers pace. It
also provided opportunities for feedback and input by those who wish
their voice to be heard in shaping a renewed Christchurch.

| The eighth annual Education Leaders Forum
Enhancing Learning Culture was held at Rydges
Latimer, Christchurch on 21 and 22 August.
Learning culture is the invisible force that shapes professional behaviour
and student achievement. Nothing is more important or potent than culture.
ELF 14 focused on how to tap into what is really going on in the culture
of a learning community in order to enhance positive learning practices.
The Government's evolving Investing
in Educational Success (IES) initiative has implications and lessons
not just for the compulsory schooling sector at which it is aimed but
for any education organisation from early childhood to tertiary which
wants to lift learner achievement, professional job satisfaction and the
status of the teaching profession.
ELF14 provided a neutral forum and a wider frame to explore and shape
some of the key IES proposals. It also provide a forum for education leaders
to share professional insights into how they have gone about enhancing
the learning culture of their education community by strengthening professional
engagement, learning development and knowledge sharing.
