This is the time of year we call for nominations for the next round of Tertiary Teaching Excellence Awards (TTEAs). Nominations for the 2014 awards need to be in with us by Friday 28 March 2014.
Our research manager, Rhonda Thomson, provides an update on the 2013 round of the National Project Fund. We were delighted to receive a record number of Expressions of Interest (EOI), seeking in total $3.4M (excluding GST) in funding from Ako Aotearoa - committing $4.4M as their organisational contribution. The NPF panel has invited six of these EOI to proceed to full proposal stage.
Experienced Māori adult educator Huhana Mete, from Tumanako Global Maori Indigenous Leadership Training & Coaching, provides the most recently- completed Central Hub project. She has produced a beautifully illustrated resource book that uses moving stories of Māori learner success to describe how to embed Māori literacies and numeracies within tertiary adult education programmes.
On behalf of Te Rūnanga Māori (Ako Aotearoa Maori Caucus) and Te Manu Mātauranga (Hui Planning Committee) we are delighted to announce the release of He Takohanga Whakaaro – the conference proceedings for Tuia Te Ako 2013. Our heartfelt thanks go to our co-hosts – Mereana Selby and the hardworking team at Te Wānanga o Raukawa.
