Workshop 1: Learning Stories as a Reflective Lens for Te Tiriti-based Practice
Kotahi te Kākano, he nui ngā hua o te rākau
A Tree comes from one seed but bears many fruit
Presented by Tania Bullick
This workshop will explore the ways that individual and teams of teachers can broaden their understanding of Te Tiriti based Practices and bicultural development using Learning Stories as a vehicle for reflection and growth. Drawing on the Learning Story and Te Whatu Pōkeka frameworks, and drawing on the assumption that children’s contributions grow a unique local curriculum, participants will reflect on their connections with and knowledge of the children, families and whānau within their setting as a foundation for further developing Te Tiriti-based practice within their curriculum design and planning.
Workshop 2: Matanga Kairāranga/ Expert Weaver
Presented by Lynn Rupe
Te Whāriki 2017 says, “the expert weaver will examine the foundations for planning and technique. If these are sound, the quality will be seen on the face-up side.” During this workshop we will delve into Te Whāriki 2017 and consider what you would weave into your local curriculum to create an whāriki worthy of an expert weaver. What does Te Whāriki 2017 inspire you to weave?
During the workshop you will have the opportunity to think about your local curriculum and decide was is valuable for children’s learning. Also you will ask yourself the question what makes an expert weaver? At the end of the workshop you will have a woven whāriki representing the foundations of learning for children - foundations that will support children for lifelong learning.
This registration is for both workshops.
