Ki te AotÅ«roa is a set of learning materials for inservice teacher educators (ISTEs) â those who work with classroom teachers and school leaders to support their professional learning and development, including advisers and facilitators from the seven major universities of New Zealand, resource teachers, facilitators from private provider organisations, and in-school leaders of professional learning. The materials were developed as part of INSTEP, a Ministry of Education, New Zealand-wide research and development initiative about the learning and practice of ISTEs.
The materials model the integration of theory and practice that is so critical for ISTE learning. Their development and evaluation has involved international educational researchers and the major inservice teacher education providers in New Zealand, as reflected in the Forewords and Acknowledgments. They are intended to help ISTEs address the critical question âHow can we improve our practice in ways that will impact deeply on teachersâ practice and lead to improved student outcomes?â As such, they should serve as a springboard for further learning and are subject to change and improvement as the knowledge base about effective ISTE practice and learning continues to grow.
Why and how these materials were developed, what they consist of, and how you might use them.
Principles underpinning ISTE learning and practice, resources ISTEs draw on, and how the principles and resources interact.
Six learning cases showing ISTEs inquiring into their practice and encouraging users to examine their own beliefs and practice.
An inquiry and knowledge-building cycle for ISTEs and practical guidance on approaches ISTEs might use while engaging in inquiry learning.
