Workshop Details

This interactive workshop provides participants with an opportunity to get inside the minds and hearts of the Pacific Island learner through exploring and understanding the four important values and principles that guide our engaging and learning.   

Through these values, role plays and strategies to assist educator approaches for the learner are practised. Being able to hear and learn each Pacific Island group’s greetings and pronunciation is the perfect step to gain your confidence in engaging the learner.
