Applying Tuakana -Teina in your practice
A one hour online session adapted from the modules within our Māori Cultural Capability Pathway.
This workshop is one in a series of seven. For information on the other workshops in this series, please see Applying Māori Cultural Capability.
Tuakana -Teina (Older - younger)
Tuakana-teina is a traditional Māori cultural philosophy and practice, and literally refers to a relationship between an older and younger sibling.
Adapted for adult education, tuakana-teina has gained new meanings, like when comparing 'experienced-inexperienced', or 'trained-untrained' people. Depending on the context, the educator can become a learner, and at times the learner can assume the educator role.
In this online workshop you will be able to:
- gain some deeper insights into the nature of tuakana-teina as a contemporary Māori value and cultural practice, and as a learning and teaching methodology
- read and respond to some activities relating to tuakana-teina
- reflect on, and write a personal commentary about tuakana-teina in your workplace practice with a colleague or adult learner.
Participants can earn Ako Aotearoa digital badges as evidence of participation and completion of course requirements.
