Te Toi Tauira mō te Matariki 2019

Te Toi Tauira

2-4 October 2019, Ngā Kete Wānanga Marae


E kore e taea e te whenu kotahi ki te raranga i te whāriki

Kia mōhio ai tātou ki a tātou

Mā te mahitahi o ngā whenu

Mā te mahitahi o ngā kairaranga ka oti tēnei whāriki.

I te otinga, me titiro tātou ki ngā mea pai ka puta mai

Ā tana wā hoki me titiro ki aua raranga i makere

Nō te mea, he kōrero anō kei reira.

E harikoa ana te ngākau kia whārikihia e mātou o te Whare Takiura o Manukau ko te Wānanga ā-tau mō te Toi Tauira mō te Matariki 2019.

Ko te kaupapa matua mō tēnei tau ko Te Whāriki. He tōpūtanga mōhio, he puna kōrero nā te Kaiākau, te pāpara a Kūkupa Tirikātene i waihotia mō mātou hei whāngai hei poipoi hoki i te mahi ngātahitanga i waenganui i a tātou katoa. I kīia nei te kōrero ‘Mā te mahitahi o ngā whenu, mā te mahitahi o ngā kairaranga ka oti tēnei whāriki.’ Mā reira ka hoki ngā whakaaro rā ki te tūāpapa o tēnei kaupapa rangatira, arā, ko te Whāriki.

Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT) is humbled to host the 20th Wānanga ā-tau for Te Toi Tauira mō te Matariki 2019.

The theme for this year is Te Whāriki. Its message seeks to inspire Māori students, staff and educators alike to once again bind their whenu (Stitch) or unique contribution through the skill of the kairaranga (leaders, motivators and innovators) to the proverbial whāriki (woven mat) which undergirds its values, thinking and expression. Thus, providing a place of stability and solid foundation to stand on for the future of our movement in the ITP sector. MIT hopes that through the metaphor of the whāriki we can again bind ourselves together in strength and unity to achieve the collective aspiration of our Māori students, staff and educators within Vocational Education and Wānanga Tertiary sector.

We will be releasing more information about speakers, when registrations are open and other details over the coming months.

TTTMTM Theme: Te Whāriki

The theme for this year is Te Whāriki. Its message seeks to inspire Māori students, staff and educators alike to once again bind their whenu (Stitch) or unique contribution through the skill of the kairaranga (leaders, motivators and innovators) to the proverbial whāriki (woven mat) which undergirds its values, thinking and expression. Thus, providing a place of stability and solid foundation to stand on for the future of our movement in the ITP sector. MIT hopes that through the metaphor of the whāriki we can again bind ourselves together in strength and unity to achieve the collective aspiration of our Māori students, staff and educators within Vocational Education and Wānanga Tertiary sector.

All speakers and activities will explore different ideas of this conference theme anchored within these conference sub-themes:

  • te reo Māori me ōna tikanga;
  • student recruitment and retention (e.g. academic support and pastoral care);
  • staff recruitment and retention (e.g. professional development initiatives);
  • administration, management, and/or governance; and
  • teaching, learning and research.

There is also an opportunity for presentations to be published – papers that meet the required criteria (attached) will be considered for publication in the MAI online e-journal.

Presentation Types

All presentations must reference work currently underway or completed within the last year. A full written paper is required for each submission.

Details of each Presentation type are outlined below:

Oral Presentations

Presentations should aim to engage the audience, to create interest, seek feedback and encourage further enquiry. Presentations are approx. 20 minute long conversation starters, followed by 8 minutes for further discussion, and a changeover of 2 minutes between presenters, a total of 30 minutes. Presentations must reference work currently underway or completed within the last year. A full written paper is required for submission.

Panel Presentations

Panel presentations should aim to engage the audience, to create interest, seek feedback and encourage further enquiry. Each panel session is a short-form 45-minute panel session.

Panel presentations may adopt an oral presentation format for each speaker (as a guide), or design a more interactive panel presentation, i.e. a combination of short opening discussions from each presenter with audience participation for further discussion.

Each Abstract submission is to be completed on the relevant submission form provided (see TTTMTM Abstract Form – Oral Submission, TTTMTM Abstract Form – Panel Submission). Please compose your abstract carefully as they will be published as submitted in the Conference Programme and on the website.
