Ako Aotearoa is committed to supporting Pacific teachers and emerging Pacific leaders in tertiary education. In conjunction with our Pacific Peoples’ Caucus, we have established the Pacific Professional Development Fund to offer professional development scholarships to Pacific staff.


These upcoming half-day workshops in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch are specifically designed for teams who are either reviewing a higher education learning program or developing a new one.

Presented by Emeritus Professor Geoff Scott, from Western Sydney University in Australia, the workshops will summarise the findings from his work with 3700 Learning and Teaching Leaders who have co-created the online FLIPCurric tool.

A non-refundable $25+GST  fee applies.
