Biology Educators’ Association of New Zealand (BEANZ) is a Standing Committee of the New Zealand Association of Science Educators whose purpose is to support and promote Biology education throughout New Zealand.
Our focus is on building pedagogy and content knowledge of members through the provision of regular newsletters, regional workshops, resources, website, and scholarships for members to attend relevant conferences, specific projects such as provision of support materials, and the biennial conference, BioLive.
BEANZ also through its BEANZ Assessment Project produces and publishes NCEA level 3 practice examination papers each year as well as other materials to support teachers in assessment practices.
Educators with an interest in biology education are encouraged to become members of BEANZ via membership of NZASE as an individual or organisation at http://nzase.org.nz/membership/
