Master of Teaching and Learning

The MTchgLn is an intensive one-year programme that prepares students for primary, secondary or Māori medium teaching in kura or whārekura.

The papers in this programme examine teaching in the New Zealand context, evidence-based inquiry, teaching diverse learners, and curriculum design and implementation.

Students work in school settings for at least 40 weeks with the professional support of Faculty Lecturers and Mentor Teachers.

The programme is underpinned by adult learning principles and there is an expectation that student teachers have the ability to work critically and independently.

Te Toi Arareo Master of Teaching and Learning (Māori Medium):

Mā te reo, ngā ūara me ngā waiaro Māori tēnei hōtaka e kawe. Nā te tautoko a ngā Wharekura me ētehi Kura Arareo te take i tū ai tēnei kaupapa. He hōtaka whakangungu pouako hei tautoko i ngā pūtoi ako me ngā marautanga Māori pērā ki Te Aho Matua, ngā Kura ā Iwi, ngā Marau ā Kura me te Marautanga o Aotearoa.

Delivery of the programme is through te reo, using Māori values and attitudes. It has been developed in collaboration with whānau, hapū and iwi so that it meets the criteria demanded in today’s kura and wharekura. It aligns with contemporary thinking about teacher preparation and will contribute to a more integrated schooling system in the future. The programme prepares students to work effectively among different philosophies/kaupapa eg. Te Aho Matua, Iwitanga, and Rumaki.
