In this course, students are introduced to the nature and purpose of education, and educational theories and concepts within the Aotearoa New Zealand context. Students will also be introduced to key documents, namely Te Whariki and the New Zealand Curriculum. Under te patai ‘Ko wai au?’ students are expected to share who they are in a pepeha. The course builds towards a critical reflection on how educational theories and concepts learned may relate to students’ own beliefs, attitudes, and values as they enter teaching and related professions.
