Applications are closed for the 2021 Dr Vince Ham eFellowship.

The Dr Vince Ham eFellowship is an invigorating and intellectually stimulating experience that aims to provide inspiration, thought leadership, and provocation. The eFellowship is a unique professional learning opportunity for educators from Māori medium and English medium settings right across early learning, kura and schools in Aotearoa.

The aims of the Dr Vince Ham eFellowship are to:

  • Support educators to undertake an action research project
  • Foster reflection and critical thinking
  • Support new approaches and innovative practices, particularly in contexts serving diverse learners
  • Build a network of innovative educational practitioners
  • Facilitate the sharing of transformational practice.

As an eFellow, you will conduct a year-long action research project with mentoring from CORE Education. The research projects have an emphasis on innovation and equity and focus on how educators can produce sustained and transformative change in education.

About Tātai Aho Rau

Tātai Aho Rau is a concept that drives our professional practice at CORE Education. The principles and values also form a touchstone for the endeavours that CORE supports and promotes, including the Dr Vince Ham eFellowship.

There are four binding threads to Tātai Aho Rau which shape our work in research and innovation:

  • Whakapapa: research and innovation connects ideas to practice
  • Tikanga: research and innovation supports reciprocity and sustains links between people and organisations
  • Reo: research and innovation is shared in ways and places where it can be used and sustained in practice
  • Wairua: research and innovation is inclusive, encourages learning and critical reflection.
