Te Whāriki, A Look at New Zealand's 2017 Curriculum Update - Raewyn Penman

About this event

Raewyn Penman, an innovator, teacher trainer and expert in early childhood education, living in Christchurch, New Zealand

The NZ national curriculum, Te Whāriki, was refreshed in 2017 retaining many aspects of the earlier version but making some significant and some more subtle changes. 

For instance, while each strand has English and Māori names, often there are slightly different cultural connotations, meaning the two are not equivalent. How can this duality be reflected in your curriculum and teaching practice?

In this webinar, Raewyn will review these changes in the world-famous Te Whariki curriculum and the thinking and intentions behind them.

There will be a particular focus on the more subtle changes and what these mean for teachers, their knowledge and their everyday practice. We will investigate how our current planning and assessment practices reflect and support the implementation of this curriculum and think about what the future could bring.
