NAME is committed to providing advocacy, collegial support and professional development to media teachers in New Zealand. In order to be able to do this we need to hear from you!
We really want to know about your current teaching situation; what media standards and topics you cover; what your professional development needs are; what regional events you are currently participating in, and what issues or thoughts you might have about teaching media. We have designed a survey which covers all of these things.
We appreciate how busy teachers are so we have tried to keep the survey as concise as possible, but we also recognise this is an important opportunity to get valuable information that could help us make a significant difference to media teachers. The survey will be available until 11:59PM Sunday 31st August (end of Week 6).
We are keen to get as many media teachers to complete the survey as possible so if you know of a colleague who might not be on one of the Facebook pages or the listserv , or who might be teaching a media standard in another department, please forward this survey on to them. We would like all media teachers in the country to complete it, regardless of whether they are NAME members or not. As an incentive, all completed surveys go into the draw to win 1 of 5 Mighty Ape vouchers.
If you have any questions about the survey please don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you out.
Thanks again. We are really looking forward to hearing your thoughts about media teaching in NZ.
Recently the new and previous executive members met for a handover and we had a fantastic session. We thought it would be a good idea to give you a bit of a heads up about some of the important things NAME is working on.
Finally I would like to take this opportunity to thank you to the outgoing members of the committee: Jane Hall and Peter Courtney, for the hard work and significant contributions they have made in their roles on the committee. To those new and continuing members of the executive: thank you for your enthusiasm and willingness to be a part of this. You rock!
Thank you to those members that engaged with the recent executive election. We are now pleased to introduce two new members to the executive team.

The National Executive has placed a Professional Learning Development funding application with the Ministry of Education. This has been accepted and the Executive has in hand a draft contract for a significant amount of money that will be paid to NAME over the next three years to deliver professional development for Media Teachers around New Zealand.
The idea is that we develop a sustainable model that then becomes self-funding.
The professional development will be delivered in three ways:
