Registrations and expressions of interest are now open for the Mātauranga Māori within New Zealand Libraries workshop, developed and offered by Te Rōpū Whakahau to support LIANZA professional development and registration schemes.

The Mātauranga Māori within New Zealand Libraries workshop is designed to provide a targeted development opportunity for information professionals. The workshop is structured on the understanding of Mātauranga Māori exists in the wider context of tikanga and Te Reo Māori and the content is underpinned by a kaupapa Māori philosophy where traditional Māori values and practices are applied in context.

You will learn and understand:

  • the importance, diversity and structure of Māori knowledge frameworks (mātauranga Māori)
  • the influence that tikanga and te reo Māori assumes in the development of Māori knowledge constructs and principles
  • the importance of kaupapa Māori methodologies in researching the needs of Māori clients
  • the relevance of Te Tiriti o Waitangi to the development and delivery of library and information services and resources

For those participants who are professionally registered under the LIANZA Library and Information Management Profession Registration Scheme, this workshop fulfils the requirements of BoK 1 (Info Environment, Policy, Ethics & History) and BoK 11 (Indigenous Knowledge Paradigms).

NB: The workshop runs from 8.45am (arrival at marae) – 5pm.

Kua eke i runga i te waka kotahi.
Kia mahara tātou kei hoe whakatuarā.
Kia tika anō te tikanga o te hoe ki tō te hunga o te ihu.
Kei huri te hunga o te kei ki te hoe whakamuri.
