At the start of our Masters journey, we were encouraged to make an introductory video. In it we highlighted Our Place; Our Practice; Our Intent. It is encouraging to see that this idea of talanoa: talk about nothing in order to get comfortable permeates down from tertiary studies, all the way through college and to primary school.
Sometimes our teeanagers think that they are far too old and sophisticated to do profiles and videos. It was quite refreshing to tell them that I had to do this exercise too. When you explain to them that it is great way to fast track positive working relationships, they happily get on with the task.
