This resource sets out 11 principles that are inherent in best practice for teaching in an online bicultural delivery environment. The intention of these principlesis to provide all kaiako with a shared understanding of online teaching expectations that embrace tikanga principles and practices throughout all areas of their online teaching . The bicultural principles were initially developed for a tertiary organisation, Te Rito Maioha Early Childhood New Zealand, but are readily transferrable to all educational settings.
Each chapter in this book begins with a principle that is then expanded on in more depth by individual authors. Some of the principles were developed with a theoretical approach, while others have a more applied approach. When reflecting on best bicultural practices for teaching online, it should be acknowledged that these 11 principles come as a package. They are an interacting mix, and the importance of their inter-relationships must be noted. No principle should be considered in isolation.
