New Zealand Association for Research in Education
New Zealand Association for Research in Education (NZARE) was established in December 1979 and its membership consists of individuals and organisations with an interest in educational research. The current president is Professor Colin Gibbs, Head of the School of Education at Auckland University of Technology.
NZARE has established international links with the British Educational Research Association, American Association for Research in Education, the Canadian Society for the Study of Children, and Australian Educational Research Association.
