Three educational anchor points—relational learning, assessment for learning, and technology-enhanced learning—are reflected in a set of pedagogical practices and experiences that aim to transform teaching and learning at the University of Auckland.
Signature pedagogical practices
Developing communities and cohorts of learning is scaffolded through appropriate learning environments, collaborative practices and relevant learning experiences.
This recasts assessment as learning, shifting the focus from end-point testing. Here we judge students’ abilities to meet learning outcomes in situations where they will be applied.
Relational learning is central to Kaupapa Māori pedagogies, which promote a holistic view of learning that envisions people and place as intrinsically and reciprocally interrelated. Fundamental to this is the nature of the relation that underpins learning, where relational learning is values-based and respects diverse ways of knowing, being and doing.
The Curriculum Framework Transformation (CFT) working group, Pūtoi Ako, describe kaupapa Māori pedagogies as teaching and learning underpinned by Māori values and reflecting Māori preferred practices.
