PolyUX applies the following practices:
Indigenous centred design - applying indigenous knowledge and ways of working.
Human centred design - practical strategies that help clients choose their own culturally competent solutions.
Systems practice - pushing beyond immediate problems to see the underlying causes in complex systems and find leverage points for change.
Moral imagination - having the humility to see the world as it is and the audacity to imagine what it could be.
The adult teaching and learning strategies used in this workshop include andragogy, self-directed learning through an online course, transformational learning and experiential learning. When participants are willing to participate and design a consultation process with Māori or Pacific communities, they are better able to manage barriers and risks and develop an action plan to be more culturally responsive.

Design a consultation process with Māori and Pacific communities to garner feedback on messaging.
Create content using Māori and Pacific values and cultural frameworks.
Ensure that your communications incorporate the expectations of diverse Māori and Pacific communities.
NB: Course participants will need to complete some self directed learning online to gauge their prior experience, strengths and needs as it pertains to the workshop content. This would need to be handed in a week before the workshop.
Feedback from previous workshop participants:
"I like the interactive elements. Good thought provoking material with practical application so I already feel like this has been useful and I haven't even done the course yet!"
"It was great having actual live examples (e.g. from the Council) that shows that the discussions aren't academic or theoretical but live and being used today."
"I like the acceptance around proving remuneration / support for engaging with Iwi, and the acknowledgement that Iwi aren't a 'resource to be used' for Government projects but a partner who we (as officials) need to look out for together."
