Learning Environments

15 points



Drawing on the cultural competency of Tangata Whenuatanga, we explore how to develop culturally responsive learning environments that provide a context for learning where the language, identity and culture of Maori learners is affirmed. We analyse and explore a range of learning environments encountered in tertiary teaching e.g. lectures, tutorials, workplace based learning & fieldtrips, specifically considering the role of hybrid/blended learning in supporting these. We examine the influence of learning environments on our teaching practice and students learning. The course offers an optional field trip to explore the concept of place based learning. Suggestions for self directed field experiences and virtual options are provided for distance students.
