This implementation project between MIT and CMDHB used action research to ensure that a scientific and robust process is followed to develop 2 DEU’s at Middlemore Hospital during 2009.
The Student Voice: Effective Representation and Quality is a collaborative project between Ako Aoteaora and the New Zealand Union of Students’ Associations (NZUSA), that will support tertiary organisations to effectively involve learners in building and ensuring high-quality provision.
Kia matatau ki te reo: Factors influencing the development of proficiency in te reo Māori with adult learners

This project identified 10 effective strategies that teachers can use within a blended learning environment to enhance learner engagement and achievement.
