Localised Curriculum Design - building your conceptual learning framework

For teachers who want to make a difference and streamline their practice

Using a format of Understand, Know, Do - we will support you in developing your localised curriculum through an integrated project-based approach. Developing ANZHC will be the base for this PLD, adapting contexts and concepts to your Kura.

PLD will include a learning programme design, where learning is through a concept, e.g. change, kaitiakitanga, rather than a ‘topic’.

The goal is to focus on understanding broad concepts or ‘big ideas - that create opportunities for rich, deep learning experiences and multi-layered learning opportunities.

Together, we will integrate opportunities to align your vision and values with local pūrakau and develop other integrated curriculum approaches. 

You will walk away with a Learning programme design that supports kaiako to provide opportunities for students to build critical and creative thinking, key research skills, perseverance and collaboration. A project-based learning approach can be brought to life through learning exhibitions involving your community.
