The course will focus on what it means to be an educator in the tertiary sector in Aotearoa New Zealand. We position Te Tiriti as central to our roles and responsibilities as educators. Working from a student-centred approach we unpack key learning and teaching theories from the perspective of culturally responsive pedagogies and look at how this contributes to success and wellbeing of learners. We explore the contemporary global context in which we are situated and the current issues and debates influencing tertiary education. Working from a student centred approach we will explore key learning and teaching theories and examine how these contribute to success and wellbeing of contemporary learners.
