Tachaiyaphum, Nutthida – Waikato Journal of Education, 2022
World-wide responses to the global pandemic, such as travel restrictions, border closures and lockdowns, have posed new challenges to researchers. For qualitative researchers conducting fieldwork, gathering data in person can be inapplicable (Howlett, 2021). My research investigates English as a Foreign Language (EFL) pre-service teachers' beliefs…

Matapo, Jacoba; Enari, Dion – Waikato Journal of Education, 2021
This article proposes a Samoan Indigenous philosophical position to reconceptualise the dialogic spaces of "talanoa"; particularly how "talanoa" is applied methodologically to research practice. "Talanoa" within New Zealand Pacific research scholarship is problematised, raising particular tensions of the universal and…

Faleolo, Ruth – Waikato Journal of Education, 2021
This paper is a consideration of how the method/methodology of "talanoa" and "va," can be used online by Pacific researchers to respond to the current pandemic's effect on the traditional face-to-face physical spaces used for knowledge-sharing. The following discussion examines and explores the two concepts: "talanoa"…

Havea, Elisapesi Hepi; Wright, Farita Tepora; Chand, Alvin – Waikato Journal of Education, 2020
The move to focus on Pacific indigenous research methodologies and methods is a complex yet ongoing experience for researchers of Pacific heritage. The relational positionalities of Pacific researchers allow a move away from a dual or binary perspective of one's research responsibilities to a more fluid understanding of what it means to do…

Reynolds, Martyn – Waikato Journal of Education, 2019
Like all acts of naming, the term 'Pasifika', which is used to refer collectively to persons with connections to Pacific Island nations living in Aotearoa New Zealand, can be used to represent or to misrepresent, to enable or to control. Consequently, the notion of a field of Pasifika educational research is contested. This article provides a…

Naufahu, Mefi – Waikato Journal of Education, 2018
A number of researchers have done extensive work on ontologies, epistemologies and pedagogies in relation to Pasifika research, but little on methodologies. Vaioleti describes talanoa as a phenomenological research approach which is ecological, oral and interactive. Halapua's article Talanoa Process: The Case of Fiji (2008) emphasises talanoa as a…
