Enhancement Theme Symposium 2019

Access, outcomes and opportunities for Māori students and for Pasifika students: Evidence and Evaluation

The second Symposium for the New Zealand Universities’ Enhancement Theme will be held on 1st November 2019 at Massey University’s Pukeahu Campus - Wellington.

This second symposium will build on the discussion and feedback from last year and addresses current theme activity in focusing on evaluation of projects and initiatives.  It will also explore how to use evidence and evaluation(s) to achieve change and facilitate sharing and critiquing of practice and aims to develop guidelines for good practice.

Therefore, the Symposium will also support the evidence-orientation of the audit phase of Cycle 6 by exploring evidence and evaluation based on Māori knowledge and on Pacific epistemologies. Following last year's model, a report from the Symposium will be developed

 Purpose/Objectives: This year’s symposium has three objectives: 

1. Learn about current research and practice in evaluating initiatives from Māori perspectives and from Pasifika perspectives

2. Share models, approaches and challenges

3. Develop principles and frameworks for evaluation. 

Who should attend:

Enhancement theme leaders, members of university enhancement theme steering groups including student members, other members of universities interested in access, outcomes and opportunities for Māori students and for Pasifika students or in evidence and evaluation from Māori perspectives and from Pasifika perspectives.

Programme:

The draft programme for the day is below. It includes plenary speaker sessions, panels on enhancement theme initiatives and workshop sessions. Three questions will be addressed in the workshop sessions from Māori perspectives and from Pasifika perspectives:

1. What principles should guide evaluation of programmes or initiatives to support tauira Māori success and Pasifika leaner success?

2. How should evaluations of tauira Māori success and Pasifika learner success be used to effect change?

3. What are the key elements of a plan for appropriate and effective evaluation of programmes or initiatives to support tauira Māori success and Pasifika learner success?

Participants should move to different group and question for workshops 2 and 3 and workshops 2 and 3 will build on workshops 1 and 2. 

 Venue: Massey University, Pukeahu Campus – Wellington

Cost: $100 (+GST)
