Te Ao Mātauranga, Our World, Our Wisdom

The theme for the eleventh hosted event is Te Ao Mātauranga, Our World, Our Wisdom.

Hui Fono 2018 invites participants on a learning journey with our hosts in Te Taitokerau, to explore effective learning spaces and consider how they have changed. Increasingly, learning spaces are flexible and networked, bringing together formal and informal activities in a seamless environment that acknowledges that learning can occur any place, at any time.

We will experience community learning practice through exchange. This will involve applying the principle of ako and a strong learner-centric philosophy beginning with mutual respect, and emphasising interchangeable roles, shared learning and embedded literacy. Our learning journey will also take us to Te Oneroa a Tōhe (90 Mile Beach) and Te Rerenga Wairua (Cape Reinga).

Hui Fono 2018 will explore how every environment is a learning space of significance. We will also explore the notion that design is a process, not a product, involving all stakeholders - particularly learners.

Our hosts are Far North Adult Literacy and Far North REAP.
