Professional development workshops
Ako Aotearoa's national Professional Development Programme is designed for educators and managers across the tertiary sector.
Our Professional Development Programme kicks off early in 2013, introducing new workshops on topics such as: mentoring learners in work placements, undertaking research projects in teaching and learning, developing effective mentoring skills, and more.
