- Your programme starts on Monday 13 January 2020 with an orientation and the start of the first course, EDMT601. This four-week intensive introductory course includes a Treaty of Waitangi workshop, a community-based learning experience, and a noho marae (an overnight stay at a marae; expected to occur during the third week). During this four-week period, there will also be activities to support your te reo Māori language learning.
- On your first day, Monday 13 January, you need to meet on campus to prepare for a Mihi whakatau a formal welcome ceremony) The Rehua Building is on the Ilam campus, corner of Forestry Rd and Arts Rd. On this day, you will also complete your enrolment in person. Further information will be emailed to you soon. A staff member will direct you from there. Information about Mihi whakatau, including appropriate attire, can be found on the College website.
- For the duration of this course, your days will begin at 9am and finish by 5pm (apart from the days on which the noho marae and the community-based experience take place). Most days will include time for collaborative or independent learning around course material and content.
