Description

Be the Change - Culturally Responsive Practice for mainstream teachers

The workshop will offer ways in which to upskill teducators in culturally responsive practice. It is designed to question whose culture counts, whilst empowering each teacher to be agents of change in their own areas.

The course will unpick the slogan of what “Māori achieving success as Māori means”, how to expand the Māori worldview in the usual constraints of curriculum planning and if the Treaty of Waitangi is even relevant, whilst introducing easily accessible ways of implementing a culturally responsive practice.

About the facilitator : Jillian Scammell

Kia ora.
I obtained a BA in Māori and Film Studies from Canterbury University in 2007, A Graduate Diploma of Teaching & Learning in 2010 and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Specialist Teaching (Deaf endorsement) in 2016. I lead the response to the Government`s strategy, Ka Hikitia (2008-) for the van Asch Deaf Education Centre, which spans the country from Taupo, in the Central North Island, down to Bluff, in the deep South. I have long had my hand in other humanistic endeavours, holding a senior responsibility in an international NGO, which works to promote peace, culture and education, both globally and in our respective countries. Under the NGO`s umbrella I held a series of public forums on the Earth Charter (http://www.sgi.org/content/files/resources/ngo-resources/SOC_pamphlet.pdf) as far back as 2005 to inspire awareness and to foster enthusiasm for change in our local community.
I am passionate about human rights and the potential of our young people, and am committed to providing an optimal educational environment, taking into account their unique characteristics in which they can thrive.
