Kia ora! The NZSLTA (New Zealand Sign Language Teachers Association) conference is a valuable professional development event for all NZSL tutors, teachers, mentors and researchers. It is an opportunity to share experiences, to learn about using the newly launched teaching resources and to share ideas.
