Who will this session be of interest to?

About the workshop

The workshop will “dig deeper” into the areas covered in the breakfast seminar. It will encourage people to think about and explore individual/professional approaches to teaching te reo Māori and tikanga. A mix of presentation and workshop methods will be used to support thinking and action.

The workshop will:

  • Enhance your knowledge and confidence about second language teaching strategies

  • Equip participants with strategies that can enable the knowledge and skills required to become more culturally responsive to Māori as tangata whenua

  • Share practical strategies for using online tools to engage with students, whānau and the community

  • Give examples of how to engage with students through cultural narratives and place based learning.
