They will review the key educational and Maori development drivers in Maori/iwi led movements: Kohanga Reo, Kura Kaupapa Maori, Wharekura, wananga and bilingual/immersion programmes. They will assess the role that teachers can play in creating and shaping communities of language learners and develop appropriate strategic plans. Note: This course will be taught through the medium of Maori.
