Ariki Process Discussion

The two year trial of the Ariki Project is nearing its end and the programme evaluation phase will be completed by December 2010. At a recent seminar of Regional Directors it was decided to record this conversation where the group looked back over their last two years’ work. The participants are:

  • Gary Punler responsible for Manawatu;
  • Liz Millar responsible for Wellington;
  • Dr Lyn Bird responsible for Christchurch;
  • Dr Wendy Bamford responsible for Central Otago;
  • Kay Tester responsible for ArikiRural; and
  • Dr David Stewart, project director.

Running through this discussion are the notions that there are multiple ways of thinking and many ways of achieving the same aim – which we call Professional Discretion;

the belief that teachers are professionals and that schools function as teams – which we call Collegial Obligations;

that Reflective Inquiry and Discourse is the core of professional interaction and development; and

and that Evidenced based Professional practice can be spread across all school activity.      

These values are supported with the evidence we are accumulating through the programme evaluation data and we are all looking forward to expanding the project to further interested groups in 2011. Please contact us if you would like any further information.
