Matauranga Maori Hei Marautanga

30 points



This course explores, examines and analyses Maori pedagogical epistemologies, tools, approaches and strategies to enable teachers who teach te reo Maori through the medium of Maori across the curriculum to incorporate Maori ways of knowing or Matauranga Maori into their teaching and learning programmes. It supports teachers to normalise viewing the world from Maori eyes as an underpinning philosophical and theoretical base. As Mason Durie succinctly states, 'to be Maori, to live as Maori and to participate as citizens of the world'. Students are required to use kaupapa Maori approaches and principles to become action researchers in the communities in which they teach.
