I am writing to express my support for Dr. Rāpata Wiri and the online interactive te reo Māori learning module that he has recently developed for use with organisations. Manaaki Whenua late last year contracted Rapata to provide a 3-month beginner and intermediate learning programme for a cohort of 15 staff located at several different sites across Aotearoa.
The sessions utilised our in-house Skype for Business video-conference platform and Rāpata’s excellent online learning app, Rāpata’s teaching style was highly interactive and engaging, with universally positive feedback from the course participants. He has a relaxed and inclusive teaching style which went a long way towards fostering the ongoing enthusiasm of those who participated in the programme.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Rāpata to other organisations. We have an ongoing demand for these courses. They’re particularly attractive because they allow work colleagues to learn together across multiple sites. Noho ora mai.
