Hi Erik,

I visited New Zealand in 1986 and also found it beautiful and the people friendly.   For this course, you will need to sign-up at Wikieducator by following the link above and completing the free registration.

Best Regards!

This sounds like it will be a great experience.  I toured all of New Zealand on a bicycle for most of 2002 and was so amazed at the beauty of the country and the people.  They were years ahead of the U.S. in terms of internet connectivity and technology adoption. I am sure this will be an exciting workshop.  Sign me up!
