He Rourou

The interdisciplinary publication He Rourou draws together the work of both Tech Futures Lab and The Mind Lab and is published semiannually and bilingually. He Rourou is open access and aims to celebrate and share the work of our students, staff and partners. Often the voices missing from the knowledge base are of the teachers and innovators who are deeply grounded in the day to day of their practice. He Rourou aims to acknowledge this by providing an output for practitioner based knowledge and research.

He Rourou encourages submissions in Te Reo Māori and english, as well as a range of mediums including audio and visual works. To submit your work please read the guidelines and complete the form linked below.

The first edition of He Rourou is now open for submissions.

We are very happy to announce that Lisa Davis (Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei) will be the guest editor.

Submit your work to He Rourou using this link.

If you would like to join the peer review panel please email the editor in chief.

The whakapapa of the design for He Rourou is a bringing together of collective ‘threads’. The patterns interweave collective threads to elevate the collective potential and shared mana – together representing the pathway of collective success, knowledge sharing and attainment. The overall Pātiki design (diamond shape) forms the basis of the design and is inspired by the whakatauki: Nā tō rourou, nā taku rourou ka ora ai te iwi With your food basket and my food basket we will thrive. Pātiki in this design has been used to represent ‘prosperity’ – the collective purpose or outcome of He Rourou being to empower, grow and engage collective voices and knowledge. The design is intended to be used as a repeatable pattern to represent the many themes, contributors, learners and collaborators.
