learning level
This course is suitable for intermediate to experienced teachers.
This three part programme will support you to recognise children’s learning at a deep and complex level.

Through the three modules you will strengthen your ability to recognise and effectively respond to individual children’s learning in line with the 20 learning outcomes of Te Whāriki.
The content is situated firmly in the context of Te Whāriki, in particular picking up on the notion of children’s learning trajectories as a mechanism for recognising and responding to children’s learning.
The three modules are designed to progressively build on your ability to intelligently observe and analyse what children are doing to identify the learning taking place.
The Notice, Recognise, Respond model is used throughout the course.

With a focus on intentionally connecting teacher actions and interactions with assessment information to improve outcomes for learners. There will also be a focus of keeping the process and documentation manageable, child centred and mana enhancing.

I really enjoyed this thought provoking course and love how it is aimed at simplifying things down and making workloads manageable for kaiako!

Great course! wonderful, insightful and reflective information on how to ensure we are supporting children's and that this is seen in meaningful documentation.

What a great course to refresh my thinking back to the fundamentals of assessing and planning for learning experiences. As stated earlier in the course, we as educators sometimes tick the boxes and don't realise that the learning isn't as meaningful to the child as we think.
