What it is:
an informal one-hour seminar session where early career and emerging researchers present their research and engage the audience in a discussion of their presentation. The difference – you are invited to have your lunch, snack, tea (whatever you would like) while we have our seminar.

Presenters:
Felila Amituanai-Semel“Multiple case study research into teachers’ pedagogical enactment of the 2010 Samoa primary school outcome-based curriculum”
Dr. Miriam Ham“Seeking Intercultural Perspectives on Appropriate Contextualisation of a Global Competence Survey Question for an Intercultural Audience” 
Gain insights and tips through this interactive workshop, led by the renowned Professor Carol Mutch (University of Auckland).

This Talanoa* will explore the history of OCIES (Oceanic Comparative and International Education Society) from its early years to the present, as well as situate it within the global field of Comparative and International Education (CIE). The speakers will also provide some insights and guidance to new and emerging researchers on how to position yourself and your research interests into this larger context of CIE.

*What is a Talanoa?
A talanoa is a conversation that explores themes or matters of importance, and one in which all participants are free to speak openly in a safe, accepting, and non-confrontational space. The conversation is characterised by the core values of respectful relationality, reciprocity and empathy. Talanoa is respectful of different viewpoints and advances knowledge while it simultaneously builds relationships and invites collaboration.
