About the series

These four courses are designed to support Māori cultural awareness and practice of four traditional values and learning/ teaching methodologies. Each course contains multi-media and interactive kōwae/ modules of work to engage in. An assessment task based on reflective practice of the learner is completed to earn a digital badge.

We are pleased to offer you access to all four MCC self-directed courses at a discounted price.
