The focus of this summary is on the Māori Medium which involved a university team, two school based hubs (settings) of teachers with in-service teacher educator support and a provider to support on-line communication and materials development.
The aim of the project was to improve the quality of teaching and learning outcomes for students in Māori medium education, within designated contexts (particularly Tikanga-ā-iwi). QTR&D within Māori Medium was managed by Māori for Māori. All the participants collaborated to meet the expressed aspirations of the hubs located in the participating kura. The outcomes of this project will inform policy, and future research and development work with teachers in schools in Māori medium contexts. This project focussed largely on inquiry in Tikanga-a-iwi.
