Enhanced visibility: face to face and online

The FLANZ 2021 Conference provides a space for local and international delegates to come together in-person and online. The conference is an opportunity to share ideas and showcase recent innovations and developments in learning and teaching, and the use of technology.

It is through professional engagement and inquiry that innovation is seeded and new approaches are taken. For sponsors, this is fertile ground to meet both decision-makers and practitioners, and create lasting, meaningful relationships.
