by Mahara Hui Organizers - Monday, 1 December 2014, 8:42 PM



The 2nd Mahara Hui, New Zealand's conference for the open source ePortfolio system Mahara is being held at AUT University, in Auckland, on 9 and 10 April 2015. A pre-hui day (pre-conference) is scheduled for 8 April 2015 to be held at the Catalyst IT office in Auckland.


The first Mahara Hui took place in Wellington in March 2014 and was well attended by 100 participants from New Zealand, Australia and further afield.


The Mahara Hui team welcomes proposals for presentations and posters as well as sessions on the pre-hui day from school students to university graduates, school teachers, lecturers in tertiary education, learning and technology support staff, developers and others who are interested in Mahara. Please review the information for proposals. You will need to register on the site and enrol in the conference to write your proposal.


The call for proposals is open until 6 February 2015. The Mahara Hui team reserves the right to accept proposals before the call for proposals finishes. Thus, early proposal submissions are encouraged.


Mahara Hui 2015 is organized by the Centre for Learning and Teaching (CfLAT) at AUT University as well as Catalyst IT, the Mahara project maintainer.

We hope you had a great start into 2015 and can look forward to a fantastic year. We certainly hope to see you in Auckland on the 8th of April for our pre-hui day and then on the 9th and 10th for great presentations and networking.

We have received our first proposals (thank you very much for the early birds) and just wanted to remind everyone that the proposal deadline is 6 February 2015. That is in just 12 days. We recommend you submit by 5 February 2015 so that you can spend Waitangi Day relaxing in the sun. ;-)

Check out our call for proposals page and submit your session suggestion(s). If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at so we can sort things out. And if you know of a colleague or student who would be interested in attending the hui and presenting, please feel free to forward the details.
