• Research partners and communities, supported through Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga’s Te Tai Ao research theme, have generated many insights into how we can work with our environment/taiao according to tikanga and mātauranga Māori, and the benefits of these approaches. Te Tai Ao has supported dozens of hapū and hapori to achieve better outcomes for environments, and people in those environments, in the face of pressing challenges such as climate change and declining biodiversity.

    DATE: Wednesday 30 June 2021
    TIME: 10am-11am
    Learn about how the face-paced world of social media and other technologies are already having an influence on Māori research. Whether you’re a TikTok aficionado or still struggling to post a status update on Facebook, this is for you.
    In this online panel discussion, we’ll hear from tech-savvy scholars, Dr Acushla Dee Sciascia (Massey University) and Associate Professor Te Taka Keegan (University of Waikato), about the opportunities and issues of using social media as a tool for Māori research and researchers.

    All welcome! Students, researchers, community members.

  • Completing a postgraduate thesis can be one of the most satisfying accomplishments that a Māori student can achieve. Too often, however, that experience can be hampered when issues arise with their supervision or research topic.

    In this online panel discussion, we’ll hear from experienced supervisors, Professor Jenny Lee-Morgan (Unitec) and Associate Professor Anaru Eketone (University of Otago), about supervising Māori students and projects. What works? What doesn’t? And, how can we not just survive, but thrive, in the research supervision relationship?

  • In this online workshop, we’ll share five key things that you can do to make sure your next application for research funding is compelling and polished – and stands out for all of the right reasons!

    Seeking funding for your projects is just part of the research ‘game’ but sometimes the proposal process can feel like a bit of a mystery…. What are the most important parts of a research proposal? What are funding assessment panels actually looking for?  And what does Ngā Pae o Te Māramatanga’s Research Leadership Team wish you knew about putting together a good funding application?

  • In this online workshop, we’ll work through the sections of the New Zealand RS&T Curriculum Vitae Template and focus on what you can do to make sure your CV is complete and polished.

  • Within traditional Māori society, koha was understood to serve a specific function with clear parameters. Today, however, the word ‘koha’ can describe anything from a ‘gold coin’ donation to a charity, to a substantial payment for services.  So, how is koha being used (and misused) in contemporary research practice?

    In this online panel discussion, we’ll hear from two Māori scholars, Associate Professor Peter Adds (Te Herenga Waka – Victoria University of Wellington) and Dr Jason Mika (Massey University), about the role of koha in both traditional and modern contexts. They will share their views on a range of koha examples and consider the cultural and tax implications.

  • Submitting your writing for publication in a journal can be one of the most intimidating aspects of the research process. Will the journal accept it or will your paper be rejected? Will the reviewers ‘get’ what you’re trying to say? And if they don’t, how should you respond
    Reviewing papers for journals can also be a big responsibility. What should you focus on? Are you meant to edit the paper in a detailed way, or just give your general impression? What affect do you want to have as a reviewed
    This online workshop and discussion will share the key components of a good review and some effective strategies for responding to reviewer feedback.

  • We're pleased to announce a new NPM workshop series of weekly online Professional Excellence workshops and interactive discussion panels that will be running for the next 7 weeks. (May-19 - Jun-30, 2021).
