Rangatiratanga (Self-determination of thinking and actions)

Rangatiratanga is a traditional Māori philosophy, value and practice of people exercising their independence, and determining their choices for governing themselves. Rangatiratanga has particular prominence as it is the basis of one of the Articles of The Treaty of Waitangi (1840), the founding document of Aotearoa NZ.  

In adult education, rangatiratanga refers to the processes of self-determination of own thinking, and of determining one's choices for practice, learning and teaching. Educators can also exercise rangatiratanga by supporting learners to be independent, and guiding them to take control of their career pathway choices. 

Learning outcomes 

In this online workshop you will be able to: 

  • gain deeper insights into rangatiratanga in tertiary education 
  • read and respond to some activities relating to rangatiratanga in tertiary education 
  • write a short reflective commentary about rangatiratanga in your practice, or with adult learners.   

Participants can earn Ako Aotearoa digital badges as evidence of participation and completion of course requirements.
