About the workshop

Course outline

An online interactive workshop using video, discussion groups and other interactive activities. Delivered by a Māori facilitator in te reo Māori and English.

Public course dates will be listed below when available.  Or, contact your local hub to discuss booking a course privately for your organisation.

Topics covered

This Professional Learning session offers a brief visual history of Te Tiriti o Waitangi for beginners. The content includes:

  • an overview of events leading up to the signing in 1840
  • what the Tiriti says
  • the consequences of colonisation
  • Tiriti-related policy in the tertiary education sector today.


Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, participants will have a basic understanding of how Te Tiriti o Waitangi informs current government expectations in the tertiary education sector in relation to decision making, Māori cultural responsiveness and equity. This learning will provide the foundation for other workshops which explore specific aspects of Tiriti applications.

Who is this workshop for?

Māori only, to ensure cultural safety for participants.

We recommend participation in this workshop prior to others in our Success for Māori Learners range. It is an essential introduction for courses focussing on implementation of Te Tiriti.

A version of the workshop designed for non-Māori is also available.
