Te Hononga Mātauranga
Te Hononga Mātauranga provides a suite of on-line audio-visual resources for Māori post-graduate students. These resources offer information on topics such as effective writing, research, ethics, Māori development, te reo Māori, reviewing literature, and cataloguing. More than 30 resources have been developed and are promoted through a weekly panui to Māori staff and students. To date, these resources have proved popular with staff and students. The project has also encouraged ongoing collaborative relationships between the three organisations.

An Ako Aotearoa Collaboration project
Te Hononga Mātauranga is a collaboration between Victoria University, Te Wānanga o Raukawa, and Massey University. Through the innovative use of technology, this project will collect web-based audio-visual resources which are designed to support Maori Ph.D. students with their research.
Presentations on the Ph.D process, research methods, data analysis, collection, writing and reporting, as well as other issues of interest will be prepared and up-loaded on to a Resource Portal. Students will then be able to access this information at any time and from any location.
