Communication and relationships
Te whakawhiti kÅrero me te whakawhanaungatanga
This chapter explores the theoretical understandings that underpin the vital area of communication and relationships. In particular, it introduces the concept of âinteractive professionalismâ, which reinforces the importance for ISTEs of treating educators and learners with respect, of valuing the knowledge that they bring, of regarding their own knowledge and theories as tentative, and of building purposeful relationships focused on shared goals for teacher learning and desired student outcomes.
