Workshop Proposal Submission has now closed. The organising committee of the National Restorative Justice Practitioners Conference calls for presenters to submit a workshop proposal for this event. The deadline for submitting your workshop proposal is 5pm on Friday 11th January 2013. Restorative Justice Aotearoa (RJA) Restorative Justice Aotearoa, is the primary professional association for restorative practices agencies and professionals in New Zealand. We formed our Association in 2005. RJA exists to promote the interests and best practice of restorative justice including the acquisition and dissemination of knowledge and skills relating to restorative justice in the community, and to promote and encourage proper conduct and accountability among its members and practitioners. RJA is registered with the New Zealand Charities Commission. About the Conference The theme of the conference is ‘The Widening Picture of Restorative Practices in Aotearoa’. The conference program of plenary and workshop sessions are organised into three main streams: 1. Justice 2. Education 3. Families, Systems and Community We see the conference as an opportunity for practitioners to undertake professional development and build networks within and between these sectors. Design, Content and Delivery of your presentation The conference program has been structured to allow presenters a choice of 60 minute or 120 minute sessions.  We urge you to take advantage of this structure to maximise audience engagement and participation. Please ensure that your presentation/workshop adheres to the theme of the conference theme. Your workshop should include the following: A brief history and the identified need implementation pathway/s outcomes (with supporting data, evaluations where possible) major issues/obstacles to implementation and how these are being addressed what it is that you are doing that constitutes “best practice” advice for conference delegates regarding your experiences. Delivery of your presentation should maximise audience engagement/participation.  Please do not read directly from notes. Please provide opportunities for discussion and involvement of your audience. Each session will be chaired by a member of the conference organising committee or another presenter.  There are two options that we would like you to consider: 1. For a 60 minute session - presenting for a maximum of 40 minutes and then 15 minutes of facilitated group discussion about your topic. 2. For a 120 minute session – designing an interactive workshop to facilitate maximum involvement from your audience - working with the facilitator to design a session that will work for you and allow for ample interaction and discussion with your group. Conference proceedings Conference participants will be provided with a brief outline of your workshop (as per your online submission), presenter biography and photo.  This information will also be included on the conference website prior to and post conference.   We regret that we are unable to provide you with final numbers of workshop attendees until the day of your presentation. Unfortunately, we will not have the facilities for you to copy any material at the conference venue. We suggest working on a maximum of 30 attendees and where possible emailing material to participants after the conference. We would like to encourage all presenters to make their presentation or supporting papers available to be accessed by participants from our website to reduce the amount of paper used at this conference and to facilitate ongoing professional development. Presenters may like to copy presentation information to disc and providing a copy to participants and the organising committee in that format as well.
