Reflective practice is important for all practitioners (teachers, tutors, lecturers etc) as a way of on-going improvement and review of their own practice and professional development. ” A Conceptual Framework clearly positions the Kai?ko as an educational practitioner. This model is implicitly informed by M?ori and Pasifika worldviews. The premise is that each Pou (being Ahau, Tauira, Ako, Tukanga) remain strong whilst the movement through critical dialogue and critical reflective practice invites the notion of shared reciprocated learning and teaching experiences. The application of ako becomes an informed reality for both the learner and the educator and the movement of exchange allows a different perspective and lens to be applied in a respectful indigenous way”.
