2024 Flexible Learning Association Biennial Conference


The 2024 Flexible Learning Association of New Zealand (FLANZ) Conference will be held at the University of Auckland’s Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences on Grafton Campus between 26 – 28 August 2024.

In keeping our learners integral in the teaching-learning process, our theme Evolving Practice in Flexible Learning reflects our rapidly evolving environment and calls for flexibility to meet the diverse needs of our learners.  Whether they are evolving spaces, methods, pathways, strategies, approaches, technologies or pedagogies, having the flexibility embraces diversity and inclusivity.

FLANZ is the national body for flexible learning in Aotearoa New Zealand: we are committed to making ako accessible to all. What makes us unique is our focus on understanding and improving the ways technologies are used to support effective education, when teachers and learners are separated by space or time, such as in distance, online, and blended learning, in open and flexible education settings. We have expertise across a wide spectrum of educational activities, and we apply this expertise to advocate for the field, support members, and provide advice when requested. Visit to read more about our events, activities and the make up of the current executive committee.

FLANZ’s vision is enacted through four strategic goals:

  1. To challenge and advance current thinking and practice about education.
  2. To build and maintain a vibrant community within New Zealand and members overseas.
  3. To make a contribution to research and practice.
  4. To connect with national and international agencies and professional bodies.

We work towards these goals through our conference, webinars, and conversations, and , our association’s online publication, the Journal of Open, Flexible and Distance Learning, our membership, website, newsletter, and social media engagement. We promote professional pathways, award scholarships, and develop stakeholder relationships.
