Introduction

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome to the Inquiring Teacher - Te Kaiako Pakirehua Ngaio Secondary (HAM) paper. The teaching team is looking forward to working with you over July - November and acknowledges the professional and life-experiences you bring to this paper. We hope that you draw on diverse worldviews, interests and expertise to think critically about the nature and purpose of practitioner inquiry, evidence-based pedagogies and educational research.

Paper Description

Students develop critical knowledge and understanding of inquiry-based practices, as contextualised in their Learning Areas and specialist curriculum subject(s). The paper introduces educational research, ethics of research, teaching inquiry methodologies, methods, and modes of synthesis.

There are no on campus Hamilton principal lectures in this paper. Rather, weekly lecture materials will be made available in Moodle on Monday mornings along with guidance for pedagogy, readings' links and support materials. You are expected to familiarise yourself with weekly materials before attending your allocated Hamilton workshop on Tuesday afternoons.
