Aotearoa NZ is a bicultural nation and our school communities are becoming much more diverse and multicultural. This course will explore how our school communities might better reflect our bicultural heritage and give mana to Te Tiriti o Waitangi. We will also share ways in which our pedagogy and practice in future focused schools, as well as our relationships with students, whānau and iwi/hapū, can support the engagement and achievement of all students.

Learning outcomes

Course participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate your current practices and pedagogy.
  • Explore and implement practical ways in which your school might better reflect the bicultural heritage of Aotearoa.
  • Empower Māori students to achieve educational success ‘as Māori’.
  • Meaningfully engage with and create partnerships with students, whānau, iwi/hapū and the wider community.
  • Implement strategies into practice that will give mana to the Treaty of Waitangi.
  • Integrate more culturally responsive practices.

Who is this for

Leaders and teachers in English Medium Schools who are seeking to improve their bicultural and culturally responsive practices, give mana to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and better engage with students, whānau and iwi/hapū.

Course format

20 week course divided into five modules (4 weeks per module):

  • Each of the five modules has a Wero (challenge presentation) for participants to create and share back.
  • Participants are also invited to reflect on each module and self assess their own progress and their school’s in relation to culturally responsive and bicultural practices.
  • There are two online webinars for each module (10 in total) for approximately one hour each.
  • Each time there is an online webinar, participants will likely have a choice of attending one of two times that week. These are likely be on a Tuesday 7.00-8.00pm or a Thursday 3.30-4.30pm.
  • We also offer a Kōrerorero session (catch up) which are optional for anyone who wants to have an informal chat about course content or the Wero. These are likely to be on a Monday 7.00-8.00pm before the challenge presentations.
  • We estimate that participants will spend approximately 3-5 hours per week to engage with the course, however where multiple staff from the same school or Community of Learning | Kāhui Ako are on the course, participants will likely work together possibly limiting the time commitment.
