Nau Mai, Haere Mai, Welcome

Whāia te mātauranga hei oranga mō koutou

Seek after learning for the sake of your wellbeing

A very warm welcome, and thank you for coming back to join together in this work and learning. Greetings to you.

The vision of UChoose is "Evolving practice through responsive professional partnerships". As part of the work toward this vision we have set up this professional online community.

Haere mai rā, ka mutu, tēnā koe, otirā koutou, mō koutou e piri mai nei ki ēnei mahi, ēnei akoranga. Tēnā koutou.

Ko te wawata nui o ‘Māu e kōwhiri’ kia "Whanake haere ō mahi mā roto mai i ngā whatunga ngaio whai take”. Hei tautoko i te ekenga ki te wawata nei, kua whakaritea tēnei hapori pae tukutuku ngaio.

The UChoose online community

This is your space, for your learning. Some of things you might like to do here are to:

  • share practice and experiences

  • reflect with/to a wider number of folks involved in education in order to evolve your practice

  • promote and support learner agency

  • share resources

  • challenge and be challenged, in a supportive environment

  • share celebrations of learning

  • promote collaborative thinking and action

  • harness the power of connectedness

  • look back at the past, to inform where we are now, in a way that enables us to focus on the future

Please make this space your own and seize the opportunities it represents. Also, if you have suggestions for improvements, changes, or additional opportunities, please feel free to send Hazel Owen an email.

Te Hapori Pae Tukutuku o “Māu e Kōwhiri”


Nōu tēnei takiwā, mō āu akoranga. Koinei ētahi mahi ka hiahia pea ki te whai i konei:

  • te tiri mahi, wheako hoki

  • te huritao me/ki tētahi rahinga o te ao mātauranga hei whakatipu i āu nā mahi

  • te whakatairanga, te tautoko hoki i te tino rangatiratanga o te ākonga

  • te tiritiri rauemi

  • te wero mai, te wero atu hoki i tētahi taiao tautāwhi

  • te tiri atu i ngā ekenga ako

  • te whakatairanga i te whakaaro me te mahi ngātahi

  • te whakaū i te wāhi nui o te whatu hononga

  • te titiro whakamuri, hei whakawhenua i tō turanga i nāianei, e pai ai tō titiro whakamua

Kia tangata whenua te kāinga nei, kainga ōna kai.  Waihoki, mehemea he whakaaro ōu hei whakapai ake, he āhuatanga hei panoni, he āheinga anō hei āpiti atu rānei, tēnā whakapā ā-īmēra ki a Hazel Owen.
