Tuia Te Ako Hui Ipurangi 2020-2021
"Tuia ki runga, tuia ki raro, tuia ki roto, tuia ki waho - tuia te here tangata!"
Ako Aotearoa launches Tuia Te Ako Hui Ipurangi – a series of five online webinars to replace our regular national Māori tertiary hui.
Starting in November 2020, our Tuia Te Ako Hui Ipurangi series features five interactive sessions with leading Māori in tertiary teaching and learning.
Responding to the challenges we all currently face, our new format hui will connect, and reconnect, people around key issues for Māori in tertiary education, through an online series of webinars.
Our Tuia Te Ako Hui Ipurangi series welcomes everyone
We welcome anyone interested in supporting tertiary Māori teaching and learning success to join us for these topical 1.5 hour online interactive sessions. Whether you are Māori or non-Māori, and whether you are based in workplace learning or a tertiary education organisation, you will find the presentations insightful and empowering.

The theme for our new online series marks 180 years since the signing of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, the founding document of our nation. By connecting tertiary education and Te Tiriti o Waitangi we can learn from the past, share current good practices, and plan for a Tiriti-led future.

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.
