Professional development (PD) New Zealand (nationwide)

Posted: 01 November 2018
Notice reference #: 1H9mwG

Join Professor Rangi Matamua, a lecturer in the Faculty of Māori and Indigenous Studies at Waikato University, and Greta Dromgool from the Science Learning Hub as we share ways to incorporate te reo Māori alongside teaching science.

The importance of te reo Māori in the classroom is highlighted in our teaching standards and government education strategies such as Ka Hikitia and Tau Mai Te Reo.

In this 45 minute webinar, we will explore the potential opportunities for using Māori language when teaching the New Zealand science curriculum. We will share our understanding of why we would do this and what it might look like.

Acknowledging we will all be at different stages in our journey with te reo Māori, we will share quality resources and teaching strategies adaptable to a range of contexts.

This session will be valuable for primary and secondary school teachers including both English medium and kura kaupapa.
