Te Ako ā-Mangarau | Hybrid learning

Preparing for disruption and planning for resilience

Hybrid learning

You can apply for 25 hours of regionally-allocated PLD to support you with hybrid learning. 

CORE facilitators with expertise in virtual facilitation and hybrid learning are ready to work with you and your teams. 

Today’s learning communities are challenged with having ākonga and kaiako working both on and offsite. Te Ako ā-Mangarau | Hybrid learning is a reality that may find you seeking support.

We’ve put together some information and resources that may help you and your learning community face these challenges.

Free webinars

Developed in partnership with Derek Wenmoth (FutureMakers), this series of webinars will empower you to tackle your teaching practice from a hybrid perspective.

25 hours of funded PLD support

Any school or kura can access up to 25 hours of funded hybrid learning PLD support through the Ministry of Education. (This is on top of existing regionally-allocated PLD funding.) The aim is to ensure all ākonga continue to be able to access learning, no matter where they are located. And that all leaders and kaiako are equipped to support them.

What could this support be used for?
  • Proactively planning and preparing for hybrid learning.
  • Getting structures and tools in place (and to prototype these while students are still ‘at school’).
  • Supporting leaders with understanding and coordinating hybrid learning requirements and programmes.
  • Mentoring support for leaders in managing staff and others in times of rapid and unpredictable change.
  • Proactively preparing for rapid transition to hybrid learning.
  • Supporting kaiako with hybrid learning curriculum design and pedagogy.
  • Supporting kaiako to understand and best utilise existing (and possibly new) online and offline tools and pedagogies.
  • Anything else that supports preparing for and implementing effective hybrid learning programmes.
Free support with hybrid learning PLD applications

Working across Aotearoa in Māori, Pacific and English medium contexts, and in all learning settings, our facilitators can provide free support with completing your application.

What is Te Ako ā-Mangarau | Hybrid learning?

Ako ā-Mangarau – Ako (to teach and learn) Manga (tributary of a river) Rau (many).

Hybrid learning means where in-person and remote forms of teaching and learning happen at the same time.There are overlaps with the term blended learning, but the main difference is the idea that home learning and in-class learning work in parallel.
