The delivery mode and learning environment of Te Pou Hono is based on traditional Māori learning principals and is influenced by tikanga and manaakitanga.

This programme is delivered encompassing a variety of study activities including, kanohi-ki-te-kanohi (face-to-face) learning, guest lecturing, practical field work, group workshops and workbooks.

 

How you will study
  • Attend timetabled hours, negotiated with the Marae, which may include:
  • Attending weekend noho or wānanga
  • Participating in activities
  • Completing assessments
  • Contributing your own research findings

 

To complete the programme, students must complete 100 learning hours per kōwae ako.  This is an equal combination of directed learning (lecturer engagement) and self-directed learning.
