    Location: Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts, University of Waikato
    Description: Practice versus theory: The value of Technology Education
    Technology Education is a core element of the New Zealand Curriculum and encompasses a lot more than just woodwork or digital technology. Because of its practical nature, it can be difficult to assess and is sometimes misunderstood or sidelined by subjects which are perceived as more ‘academic’. Professor Williams will describe his research, which aims to assess practice, and in so doing, help overcome the false dichotomy between theory and practice. He will argue that technology needs to be recognised as a broad and highly-valued subject.
