Rauru Whakarare Evaluation Framework

There is now a te reo version, in addition to the existing English version, of the Rauru Whakarare Evaluation Framework: entitled Rauru Whakarare: He Anga Arotake. This framework was first developed a few years ago, and is introduced thus "The Rauru Whakarare Evaluation Framework provides a kaupapa Māori-informed approach to evaluation that enables us to critique and engage deeply with the information that surrounds us. It is available for teachers, students and librarians in all educational contexts to start a conversation about information quality and its contribution to our learning. We integrated Māori concepts into the framework to promote deeper engagement with the information evaluation process than can be captured using English terms. We believe that the Māori concepts contain an embedded spirituality and metaphor that is often lost in a purely literal English translation." The Framework can be used under a creative commons license, and the page which describes the Framework and links to resources in both languages is here:
