Fundamental Teaching Theories


Fundamental Teaching Theories…

Teachers are the most important resources in any ECE setting. “Kaiako has a responsibility to be knowledgeable about theories that underpin effective pedagogy in Te Whariki, it’s framework and
intent.” Te Whariki, page 59.

The knowledge and effective implementation of theories that teachers use, in deliberate and intentional ways, have a powerful effect on learning.

The ability to effectively use appropriate teaching theories and strategies is a significant component of being a teacher as described by the Standards for the Teaching Profession.

In this workshop, we learn the best ways to add value to children’s learning experiences.

The workshop will:

  • provide an opportunity to explore the teachers’ role.
  • reignite purposeful, intentional teacher engagement and actions.
  • assist in identifying theories and practices that support dispositional learning and children’s strengths.
  • introduce you to less familiar theorists.
