CDANZ National Conference 2019

CDANZ National Conference 2019

Your practice - Today and tomorrow

In partnership with University of Canterbury

University of Canterbury, Christchurch / 5 & 6 September 2019

 

Over the past three years CDANZ flagship event has focussed on big themes highlighting and investigating the value and impact of career development on the wellbeing of our clients, society and economy:

  • 2016: Our Value, Our Voice
  • 2017 Aspiration and Possibility
  • 2018: Social Justice.

This year, at our national conference for research and leading practice, we examine ourselves and put career practice in New Zealand under the microscope to examine:

  1. What innovative models of career practice are working now at home, and abroad?
  2. How will career practice need to change to address the diverse needs of clients in the new economy?
  3. How can you adapt your practice to remain relevant, accessible and sustainable, and so that New Zealanders receive excellence in career development support?

CDANZ national conference is an opportunity to look up from your own work to engage with your peers from across the country and bright minds from overseas, to build your networks, to share and exchange knowledge, to challenge your thinking, to catch up on the latest research and to gain practical tools and insights in leading practice.

Call for Abstracts - closes 17 June

We are currently accepting submissions for:

1. Landscape Scan – this programme item raises awareness for career development related research projects that are still in progress, or will not have been published at the time of the conference. These might be Masters or PhD research projects, or other academic, public or private sector research. Speakers will be assigned 2-3 minutes to briefly introduce their projects. You do not need to submit a full abstract for the Landscape Scan but you do need to complete this form.

2. Concurrent Presentation or Workshop Session – you may submit an abstract to present a 45 minute session on a completed research project or proven leading practice. Please submit your abstract here. 

The conference committee will select abstracts to programme up to twelve 45 minute sessions, some of which may be shared sessions.

The committee are seeking a balanced programme that prioritises research and leading practice that reflects upon the theme Your Practice - Today and Tomorrow, and is relevant to one or more of CDANZ workstreams - education, organisational development, vocational rehabilitation and private practice. 

If your abstract is selected you will be required to register for, and to attend the Conference. You will be eligible for special Speaker's Rates.
