Our Philosophy

 

NZCDI believes quality education is:

supported by a coherent philosophy;
theoretically logical;
underpinned by research evidence;
culturally relevant;
valid in practice;
experiential;
interactive;
authentic;
holistic;
and enjoyable from a learners perspective.
 
This philosophy is underpinned by holistic, experiential, socio-cultural, socio ecological, student centred, multiple intelligences and Treaty of Waitangi research, theoretical/conceptual and practice-based evidence and scholarly literature.


NZCDI's programmes ‘live’ this philosophy.
