Kia eke ki te taumata - Success for Māori in tertiary education
Full-day workshop | $290 + GST
About the workshop
This workshop will introduce participants to kaupapa Māori; providing a safe learning environment to develop a greater awareness of how it may be applied to educational practice.
This akomanga (workshop) is designed for all educators (Māori and non- Māori) who work with Māori learners.
Through reflection, discussion and practical activities, participants will make connections to their own teaching context and explore some of the key findings from studies that investigated:
- enhancing success rates for Māori learners
- teaching with the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi
- understanding Māori learners
- implementing Kaupapa Māori.
The workshop facilitatator will tailor the akomanga to ensure that it meets the needs of participants.
The follow-up evaluation will assist participants to track how the links they developed to their own context at the akomanga progress to enhanced learner outcomes.
