We will kick off our ALNACC professional learning and development (PLD) programme for 2019 with a roadshow, bringing you all you need to know about what we have in store for you and how you can get the best out of our brand-new PLD offerings.
$50 + GST (includes networking function and lunch).
There will be two concurrent workshops:
Literacy and Māori Cultural Capability
This workshop includes
- tasters of some of our literacy PLD offerings this year
- teaching and learning strategies for spelling and reading comprehension
- an activity on the Māori world view of spelling
- practical tips on how to support learners with reading difficulties.
This workshop is also an introduction to the online ‘Māori Cultural Capability Pathway’ resource. This pathway offers opportunities for practitioners to develop their knowledge and understanding of some Māori educational pedagogies – with modules of work titled ‘Ako’ (Learning/ Teaching), ‘Manaakitanga’ (Caring), ‘Rangatiratanga’(Empowering students), and ‘Whanaungatanga’(Relationships). There will be opportunities to attempt some of the interactive activities, and to discuss their application to your practice.
Numeracy and Pacific Cultural Centredness
This workshop embarks on a journey into the culture and values of the Pacific Peoples and explores how these might be used to engage Pacific learners in the world of numeracy.
Content areas include:
- Understanding why many people struggle with numeracy and strategies for how this can be addressed
- Ideas, tips and hints for creating numeracy lessons in a culturally engaging manner
This workshop is also an introduction to the online ‘Pacific Cultural Centredness Pathway’ resource.Staying connected to one’s indigenous heritage is paramount for Pacific Peoples. Centred on the seven Pacific Island nations of Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, Cook Islands, Niue, Tokelau and Tuvalu, the content enriches and strengthens the cultural awareness and knowledge of tertiary educators working with Pacific learners. Provided here are insights into the cultural concepts of Respect, Spirituality and Reciprocity, Family and Community Responsiveness, and Leadership and Service.
