This course is taught through te reo Maori. It will critically examine Matauranga Maori: Maori ways of knowing and engaging with their environment in traditional and contemporary contexts as a means of developing a Kaupapa Maori based curriculum. Maori knowledge systems are valued and central to curriculum development. Students will also compare and contrast other indigenous epistemologies as frameworks for curriculum development in educational settings. There will be a strong emphasis on Te Wai Pounamu contexts and content and students will work in partnership with selected Maori and marae communities to investigate, report and apply Matauranga Maori in the development of curriculum materials and teaching resources.
Subject to approval of the Head of School
Students must attend one activity from each section.

Students display academic integrity when they submit for assessment work that is their own. When this is not the case, the students are engaging in cheating or dishonest practices. All forms of cheating and dishonest practice are taken seriously and penalties will result. Students should refer to Regulation J of the General Course and Examination Regulations. It is unacceptable to submit sections of work completed for one course as part of an assignment for another course.
The assignments are graded against the University scale A+ to E. Satisfactory completion of the course overall to at least a C- grade is required in order to pass the course. All parts of the assignment must be submitted.Calculating the final grade: Final grades for the course will be calculated taking into account the weighting of each part of the assignment. The University of Canterbury grading scale is:Grading ScaleGrade GPA Value MarksA+ 9 90 – 100A 8 85 – 89.99A- 7 80 – 84.99B+ 6 75 – 79.99B 5 70 – 74.99B- 4 65 – 69.99C+ 3 60 – 64.99C 2 55 – 59.99C- 1 50 – 54.99D 0 40 – 49.99E -1 0 – 39.99A Pass is 50 marks or over An examiner's meeting will be held at the end of the course to confirm final grades and to ensure fairness and consistency.
Attendance at class sessions is expected throughout the course for New Plymouth students. Students must attend and participate in the course sufficiently to meet the learning outcomes. Students are responsible for obtaining relevant lecture/course information should they miss classes. Insufficient attendance and participation in the course may make students ineligible for professional practice.
Formal and informal evaluation will take place in accordance with the relevant Course Evaluation policy, to provide feedback to teaching staff about the relevance and validity of what has been learned as well as the quality of course delivery.
The College of Education Health and Human Development undertakes a process of internal and external moderation of assessment. This is to ensure that the assessment system is fair, equitable, consistent and manageable.
Work handed in after the due date with no extension granted is considered late. Late work will be accepted up to one week after the due date. If, for any reason, you are having difficulty in keeping to the deadline for assignments, you must make contact via email with one of the course lecturers so that we can work with you as to what is possible and reasonable. Marks will be deducted for lateness. Lecturers reserve the right not to mark late work, and no work will be accepted after assignments have been returned.
Assignments must be word processed in Times New Roman, 12 point font with a 3cm left hand margin, 1.5 line spacing, and stapled in the corner. APA format is required for references. Keep a copy of all assignments. Students must attach a completed cover sheet to all work.
Under exceptional circumstances (eg illness, accident, bereavement or critical personal circumstances) individual students may be granted an extension of the due date for an assignment. There is, however, a limit to the length of time that an extension can be granted and this should be negotiated with the course co-ordinator in the first instance. Extensions will not normally be given for longer than one week from the due date, unless exceptional circumstances prevail. Extensions are not granted automatically to students. Requests for extensions should be emailed to the course co-ordinator at least two working days prior to the due date for the assignment. Relevant evidence such as a medical certificate or a letter from a counsellor may be required in order for the course co-ordinator to make a decision about whether or not to grant an extension. A copy of the course co-ordinator's email confirming the extension (if granted) and any supporting documentation must be attached to and submitted with the assignment. Extensions will not normally be granted because of pressure of University study, eg several pieces of work being due at the same time. Students are encouraged to plan their work in a realistic manner and in advance so they can meet their assessment deadlines.
Resubmissions are restricted to work that is originally submitted on or before the due date. Late assignments are not normally considered for resubmission unless there are exceptional circumstances. If the student’s assignment work meets most of the criteria required to pass, they may be given the opportunity to resubmit the assignment to bring it to a passing standard. Only one resubmission is possible within the course. Students will have one week from the return of an assignment, to resubmit their work. A resubmitted assignment that meets requirements will be awarded a minimum passing grade. A resubmitted assignment that does not meet the passing standard will be awarded a ‘D’.
Where for reasons beyond their control, students are prevented from completing an assessment or suffer significant impairment, they may apply for what is known as “special consideration”. University of Canterbury Special Consideration provisions may apply to impaired performance, non-completion of assessment items, and to late discontinuation (withdrawal) from a course. A detailed description of special consideration and materials to support the applications process are available at: Special Considerations Process. Generally speaking, applications for special considerations should be lodged within five working days of the due date of that assessment item. For more details on this, please refer to the Special Considerations Regulations. This information replaces any previous references to special consideration, Aegrotat or Backdated (Late) Withdrawal in the Course Information System, Learn or Course Outlines. If you are unclear about the implications or process please discuss with your Course Coordinator or contact the Student Advice team for assistance.
