Te Wānanga o Aotearoa is encouraging kaiako to share their best-practice when it co-hosts this year's Tuia Te Ako hui on December 7-8 at its Māngere Campus.

The annual hui brings together the diverse Māori tertiary whānau to discuss, debate and challenge current issues.

The theme for the two-day event is Te Manu Mātauranga: Sharing Successful Māori Teaching Practices and Learning Strategies and was devised by Ako Aotearoa – the National Centre for Tertiary Teaching Excellence.

It features speakers including Te Taiurungi Dr Jim Mather, Tumuratonga Keri Milne-Ihimaera, lawyer Moana Jackson, sociologist Tracey McIntosh, Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei social development company Whai Maia chief executive Rangimarie Hunia and international education expert Dr Jeff Duncan-Andrade from San Francisco State University.

Ako Aotearoa Deputy Director Māori, Dr Joe Te Rito, is delighted that the two organisations are co-hosting the hui this year.

"As Māori we bring unique and distinctive approaches and perspectives to the tertiary sector," he says.

"Te Manu Mātauranga is the metaphor and negotiator for the lifelong educational journeys that tauira and kaimahi have commenced, or are about to embark on. Whether kaiako get involved as part of the programme, or support  others presenting, we look forward to sharing this event with all Te Wānanga o Aotearoa staff."

Abstract submissions for the hui are open until Monday, 31 October.  To submit an abstract email tuiateako@massey.ac.nz for more information or visit https://akoaotearoa.ac.nz/download/ng/file/group-4188/tuia-te-ako-2016-programme.pdf for the full programme.
