If you teach or support learners in foundation education and are keen to learn more about how you can develop your cultural capability and your capability in teaching literacy and numeracy then join us on our ALNACC professional learning and development (PLD) programme roadshow.   

This workshop features two concurrent sessions:

Literacy and Māori Cultural Capability

This interactive workshop includes

  • tasters of some of our literacy PLD offerings
  • 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.

It also offers an introduction to the online ‘Māori Cultural Capability Pathway’ which offers opportunities for practitioners to develop their knowledge and understanding of some Māori educational pedagogies.

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

The workshop also introduces the online ‘Pacific Cultural Centredness Pathway’ resource which is designed to enrich and strengthen the cultural awareness and knowledge of tertiary educators working with Pacific learners.

Networking Functions

The workshops will be followed by a combined networking function, where you can

  • get together with other practitioners
