We are calling for abstracts for oral presentations of research undertaken by SIT, Ara or Otago Polytechnic staff on any topic.

This year Otago Polytechnic is hosting OPSITARA, on 14/15 July 2022. This will be an online event and registration is free.

Research can be co-authored with students, however the lead researcher and presenter must be a staff member.

Abstracts should include a title and discuss how the presentation will cover:

  1. The research aim/question
  2. The research design/methodology
  3. Ethics approval for the research
  4. The findings or results
  5. The implications for our teaching, iwi, industry, professions or communities

Maximum word length is 250 words. References are not required. Up to five key words may be included.

Deadline for abstracts is Friday 6 May 2022.

Abstracts will be peer reviewed.

For each author please provide name/s, position/s, institution name, ORCID number if any, and a 50 word bio.

Presentations may be for 5 minutes or 15 minutes.

After the symposium abstracts will be published with presenters’ biographical information.
