It drew on recent New Zealand research findings about the teaching and learning of science, and highlight examples of innovative practice.

The kaupapa of the 2015 hui is Re-searching Rangatiratanga, Innovating Mātauranga. It is our hope that hui participants will be inspired by the speakers to re-examine the origin and the meaning of these two concepts, and consider their practical expression historically, at present and in the future.
