This course and second teaching practice experience provides opportunities for Pre-service teachers to advance learning about teaching and demonstrate professional skills, knowledge and dispositions. Mana ako is a way of describing how, through a process of exploration on teaching practice, pre-service teachers learn how to teach. During this process of self-discovery and understanding of their own developing teacher identity, pre-service teachers develop skills of collaboration, problem-solving, perseverance, curiosity and confidence. Practice experience is focused on understanding and responding to learners, design for learning, establishing a learning-focused culture, fostering professional relationships, enacting principles relating to Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and engaging in professional learning. The course and teaching practice experience is closely linked to other courses in the BTchLn programme.
