Presenter: Waitiahoaho Emery
Status: Recording available

Workplace tutors are often strapped for time when it comes to developing activities and producing resources for implementation in teaching. This webinar introduces a resource for written business communication, and demonstrates from that resource, a selection of activities, suggestions for their use, and templates which can be adapted according to programme. The majority of employees and workplaces worked with by the Waiariki team have been Maori. This resource therefore is designed with the needs, learning styles and characteristics of those learners in mind. This resource is tactile, co-operative, visually engaging, easily read and easily navigated.

Foundation Learning Workplace Literacy Resource was developed specifically to assist transferring skills at raising literacy and numeracy in the workplace. This is an electronic file that can be developed and duplicated sector wide to assist other organisations with this work.
