Yes! This event is particularly focused on people who have no background, are teaching these topics for the first time, or would like to go over the basics really carefully. It is also intended to offer material at a higher level for those seeking it. The intent is to offer a forum where we can focus in on topics of interest to teachers, and address issues facing you directly. Some open sessions to help facilitate this discussion are also offered.
We aim to make the conference free for teachers attending the conference, and cover transport, accommodation, and food costs. However due to the wide range of transport costs, we ask for teachers to pay for their transport directly and we will reimburse the cost after the conference. For the main centres there is a fixed travel subsidy, which should be enough if you book in advance.
For those travelling from out of town, we provide free accommodation at the Te Puni Halls of residence (which is adjacent to VUW). Please let us know the details about which nights you require, which will be collected from you when you register for the conference. If you require any alterations or changes please contact us. The School of Engineering and Computer Science will cover this cost for you. The services provided by Te Puni include towels and bedding, a continental breakfast (from 8am-9am), shared bathrooms, common rooms and free Wi-Fi.
Please pay for these and keep the receipts and pass them to us. We will then reimburse you. We are happy to cover costs for parking, flights, petrol and other associated costs.
Unfortunately we can't cover that; we've chosen the time of year to try to make it easier to get time out of school, but we appreciate that for some schools this will be a cost to bear.
For those who are paying for travel, we'll have a form for you to fill out with your bank account number for reimbursement. This is confirmed when you arrive at the workshop. The payments will be administered by the IITP, and should be made soon after the workshop. Accommodation costs will be paid directly by us.
Yes. If your school offers to pay for your travel themselves, then that's a big help to us and we'll be thinking really nice things about them! If they are underwriting the cost, we can reimburse your school if they can provide an account number for that.
These details will be collected from you when you register for the conference.
Yes, but we cannot provide a transport subsidy as our sponsors provides money specifically for CS4HS attendees.
If you have any special conditions, needs or issues you would like to make us aware of please contact us.
