Women remain under-represented in leadership roles in New Zealand sport. This research examines the university learning experiences and career expectations and experiences of female sport management graduates and CEOs of New Zealand sports organisations. It concludes with implications for tertiary teaching and learning practices.
This project aimed to understand the knowledge gaps between the work administrative professionals undertake in their workplace and the requirements of the National Diploma in Business Administration Level 5 (NDBA L5), how these gaps are filled now and how they might be filled in the future.
Health informatics is an applied hybrid discipline of health and life sciences, computer
science and business. Teaching this subject to undergraduate students, presents the
challenge of learning without the assistance of internship or work experience that enable
placing the learning in context. We used the university’s learning management software as a
form of social medium to stimulate discussions in preparation for 2 assignments, while
creating an environment in which scaffolding could occur for both students and teachers.
We found that the online discussions were valued by the students and added value to their learning, because they could use their social presence in a format familiar to them, and also use a process of
collaborative knowledge creation about health informatics.
Tertiary institutions are motivated to offer greater flexibility in the delivery of their courses in order to increase student enrolments, retention and outcomes. The use of information and communication technologies (ICT) provide a means of delivering course content to learners who cannot be present on campus at specific class times. This poster graphically demonstrates how the design of blended task-based learning environments offer flexibility of time, place, student learning style, and teaching and learning approach, all of which are more suitable to the needs of today’s learners.
Researching the career pathways of women across different generations may help us to understand why women remain under-represented in leadership roles in New Zealand sport. The purpose of this inter-University research is to examine the university learning experience, career expectations and experiences of females in New Zealand sport organisations. The experiences of two groups of women will be examined. The first group will be recent female sport management graduates and the second will be female CEOs of New Zealand sport organisations.
This project reports on a strategy which can used in the context of lectures to improve student engagement and interaction. The Classroom Performance System hardware and software package provides students with clickers, which permits them to respond to multiple choice, true/false, and yes/no questions.
