Keynote Address 2014 - Wiremu Doherty

Wiremu Doherty based his PhD on the roots of Mātauranga Māori in tribal based knowledge – Mātauranga-a-Iwi. He combines a kaupapa Māori background with educational experience in imaging future education and its relevance to Māori to form the Ranga Framework. As professionals who connect with knowledge in all its forms every day, Māori and non-Māori alike, you will want to add this framework to your own basket of knowledge.
