Designing Your Curriculum – Touring the the South Island in April 2019

Professional development (PD) South Island

Posted: 28 January 2019
Notice reference #: 1H9qcX

Let the uniqueness of the child guide our work

Mā te ahurei o te tamaiti e ārahi i ā tātou mahi

Workshops will explore ideas around curriculum, assessment, planning, Te Whatu Pōkeka and Te Titiriti-based practice.  Using these practices, we hold the child, their family and whānau firmly at the centre of everything, while honouring their contributions as a basis for the design of a local curriculum for your individual setting. 

There will be a choice of two workshops and they will be repeated in each session so attendees can choose to attend one or both.

Early-bird price (for bookings made before 31 January 2019)

$55 per workshop

$100 for the same person to attend both workshops

Each workshop will run, in each location as follows:


Monday 1 April, from 4–6pm and again from 6.30–8.30pm


Tuesday 2 April, from 4–6pm and again from 6.30–8.30pm


Wednesday 3 April, from 4–6pm and again from 6.30–8.30pm


Thursday 4 April, from 6–8pm only


Workshop 1: Learning Stories as a Reflective Lens for Te Tiriti-based Practice 

This workshop will explore the ways that individual and teams of teachers can broaden their understanding of Te Tiriti based Practices and bicultural development using Learning Stories as a vehicle for reflection and growth.  

Workshop 2: Matanga Kairāranga/ Expert Weaver

Te Whāriki 2017 says, “the expert weaver will examine the foundations for planning and technique. If these are sound, the quality will be seen on the face-up side.” During this workshop we will delve into Te Whāriki 2017 and consider what you would weave into your local curriculum to create an whāriki worthy of an expert weaver. What does Te Whāriki 2017 inspire you to weave?
