An Introduction to Mantle of the Expert (2021-2-3)

Jun 26, 2022

Join Viv Aitken, Tim Taylor and Whakarongo Tauranga as we discuss the ten core elements of Mantle of the Expert: what they are, how they underpin teaching and learning, and how to plan for them. This podcast series is designed for teachers in Aotearoa, but will be relevant for anyone with an interest in Dorothy Heathcote's Mantle of the Expert teaching approach. The series consists of an introduction and ten main episodes (one per core element) plus there are 'bonus tracks' of extra material. Episodes are accompanied by notes, which can be found in the comment section.

Note from Viv: Thanks to the kaiako and tamariki at Knighton School in Kirikiriroa / Hamilton whose planning and teaching provided a rich example of Mantle of the Expert for us to draw on. Special thanks to Nicole Antoniadis, and Chrissy Cottingham, whose voices feature in the Introduction. And Tim and Whakarongo - thank you from the bottom of my heart for agreeing to share your skills and knowledge. It was such a privilege to talk, laugh and reflect with you through the many hours of in-depth kōrero that went into this series. I hope I've managed to capture the flavour of the experience so our listeners can enjoy it as much as I did!
