The Resource Centre contains practical material about good teaching and learning in the tertiary sector. The Resources can come from the Communities and Project Groups on the site. The Resources are high-quality, well-presented, evidence-based, and relevant to New Zealand.
This section includes items relevant to the teaching of Architecture and Building, including Construction, and related trades.
This guide is written to help teachers /workplace trainers study the learning of trades-skills and knowledge by students or apprentices in classrooms, workshops or in the workplace by using videos and the multimodal discourse analysis method.
The design crit is a key part of design and architectural education, which involves students publicly presenting their design projects in front of critics, usually from academia and design practice. Working with architecture and design students, this project tested the validity of new types of design crits with the aim of improving learner outcomes.
This report presents New Zealand Institute of Economic Research (NZIER) findings from a qualitative study which aimed to examine the current and future skill needs of the building and construction industry. Fieldwork consisted of focus groups and depth interviews with a sample of the Building and Construction ITO stakeholders: employers, BCITO apprentices, industry association staff and staff at relevant polytechnics and PTEs.
This research project was commissioned by the Joinery Industry Training Organisation (JITO) to understand learning on and off the job, the connections between them, and where learning support (specifically with literacy, language and numeracy) can be provided.
