Planning for a successful learning experience

Lean into discomfort

Check out the 'Taku Whare Wānanga' karakia. Stay open to being an active learner. When you catch yourself certain about something, ask yourself how you came to know what you know and what perspectives you may not have considered.

Participate in discussions

Engage with your peers, dive deeper into concepts and broaden your perspective.

Give feedback

Asking for and giving feedback play crucial roles in learning. Use our feedback guide to give constructive feedback and make valuable connections.

Stay in touch

Your learning isn’t over when the wānanga ends. There will be weekly wānanga to consolidate learning.
