In this course we grapple with literature and practice around what it means to be a tertiary teacher in a bi-cultural Aotearoa. Drawing on the varied disciplinary and teaching contexts of participants we explore educators identity, philosophy, and practice. The course covers kaupapa that have been influential on and underpin current approaches to tertiary and/or vocational education. Formative feedback and the class community are integral in informing your thinking and learning in this course.
