This workshop is one of a series of seven. Watch a short video introduction to the series, or find out more and book other workshops here.
Whanaungatanga (Building respectful relationships)
Whanaungatanga is a traditional Māori philosophy and cultural practice, and describes the kinship relationships in Māori society between relatives, and within and between whānau (families), hapū (subtribes) and iwi (tribes).
In tertiary education, whanaungatanga has been re-conceptualised as a value and practice referring to close, family-like relationships between people in the workplace. Requiring time and effort, the practice of whanaungatanga helps to build respectful relationships between people.
This online workshop is an introduction into some deeper insights about Whanaungatanga:
- Different concepts about whānau.
- Concepts about whānau-like relationships in work contexts.
- Ways to promote whanaungatanga in tertiary and work contexts.
By the end of this workshop you will be able to:
- recognise and describe Whanaungatanga as a traditional Māori cultural philosophy
- identify and explore applications of Whanaungatanga as a contemporary Māori learning and teaching methodology.
Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is recommended for teaching and learning support practitioners seeking to expand their understanding and practice.
