PAE AKO

Ako means to teach and to learn. Teaching and learning work in a reciprocal relationship with each other. Akoranga, as a derivative of ako, embraces the context in which learning and teaching take place. Akoranga also extends to include the content, circumstances, time and place of learning.

How our values inform our practice

NGĀ UARA WHAKAHAERE

 
Glossary of terms

We embrace the reciprocal relationship implied in good learning and teaching and understand that both students and staff contribute their knowledge and perspectives to the overall learning experience. We recognise that ako encompasses the content, circumstances, time and place of learning.

ACTION 1:

We will empower students to be active partners in their learning by fostering an engagement with the process of learning itself, alongside disciplinary knowledge, providing meaningful feedback opportunities to improve and enhance learning, and involving students in academic decision-making.
