Kanohi ki te Kanohi: Knowledge Connections
Kanohi ki te Kanohi literally means face to face, but a more accurate English title for this session would be Knowledge Connections. This is an opportunity to encounter Māori protocols and culture directly and to develop a better understanding of important issues for a bicultural organisation commited to the Treaty of Waitangi.
Why are new staff invited?
The University is commited to providing training for all staff so that they gain a proper understanding of the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi. This session aims to provide a common basic understanding of the Treaty and associated issues.
Who should attend?
All new staff are expected to attend the one day programme in order to gain a proper understanding of the Treaty in accordance with the University's strategic objectives, but any staff member may attend as local needs allow. Any staff who feel they already have a good understanding may still benefit from attendance and be able to make a valuable contribution to workshop discussion, so feel free to contact us to discuss this further if you wish.
