History of Tuia Te Ako
In August 2010, the inaugural Māori tertiary education hui, Tuia Te Ako, was held at Pipitea marae, Wellington. It was agreed that there was a need for such a gathering for Māori educators to come together to reflect on, and share, aspects of tertiary teaching and learning and that the event would be an ideal forum to discuss and share existing models of good teaching practice with a focus on assisting whānau, hapū, iwi, and Māori communities to achieve their aspirations.
