ISBN: 9781988503288

Author: Matiu Tai Ratima    Publisher: Canterbury University Press

This practical guide to culturally responsive teaching practice in the tertiary sector is designed to support kaiako (teachers) to reconfigure the teacher/learner dynamic and question old habits, with a view to embracing kaupapa Māori and diversity. Step by step,‘Ngā Hau e Whā o Tāwhirimātea’ explores core Māori values that can be used to enhance kaiako effectiveness and relationships with students, Māori and non-Māori alike, including: manaakitanga – ethic of care; whanaungatanga – relationships; kotahitanga – unity; and rangatiratanga – student agency and leadership. Working at their own pace, kaiako can engage with Māori students and stakeholders to co-develop learning outcomes, processes and assessments that support student success in the tertiary environment.‘Ngā Hau e Whā o Tāwhirimātea’ can be used in a cycle of reflective practice, drawing on past experience and feedback from colleagues and community to develop cultural competence and confidence in tertiary learning spaces.
