Wānanga / Talanoa

The wānanga and talanoa is a dedicated space in the programme to discuss your Hui Fono experience. In this session we discuss key learning, ask questions, share insights and offer ideas about how this might be applied in our work and back in our communities. The concept of talanoa builds on the definitions that it is ‘a personal encounter where people story their issues, their realities and aspirations’ (Vaioleti, 1999-2003), and wānanga ‘as a doorway into higher learning’ (Turia, 2006). A full outline of this session with agenda will be included in the Programme booklet.

Haerenga: learning journey

A special feature of the programme will be an excursion to learn from the local context and education programmes.

Ako: learning exchange

The Ako: learning exchange is an opportunity to teach and learn. The marae and surrounding areas will be transformed into learning spaces and facilitated sessions by hau kainga (home people).
