Course description

Through an exploration of second language acquisition and pedagogical processes, including an analysis of the latest learning technologies, this course will enable critical reflection on current Te Reo Māori teaching practices, enhanced language development, and an opportunity to evaluate and strengthen the effectiveness of one's own Te Reo Māori teaching practice. This course will be taught in Te Reo Māori.

Course overview

Te Ao Māori’s current language mantra is Kia rere, kia tika, kia Māori!  Just exactly how proficient is your reo?  How can we teach more effectively in te reo Māori? In this course, we will focus on growing your proficiency in te reo Māori and deepening your understanding of the pedagogical theories and methodologies that underpin the effective teaching of and through te reo Māori.

Learning outcomes

At the completion of this course students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an ability to use Māori language accurately and appropriately in a classroom setting.
  • Investigate second language acquisition theories, second language teaching techniques and current technologies to enhance the teaching of and through the Māori language.
  • Critically analyse and strengthen one's own teaching practice.
