Results for Education
The over-arching objective of this project was to improve accounting and finance academics’ teaching effectiveness that would enhance students’ learning outcomes.
Six New Zealand tertiary institutions are engaged in a collaborative network of practice around learners and mobile devices, examining the ways in mobility, social media and new approaches to learning and teaching are changing the landscape of education. The project will generate a range of practical strategies for students, teachers and leaders to utilise the affordances of mobile devices for pedagogical transformation and empowering learners.
The overarching aim of the project is to understand first-year New Zealand students’ experience with assessment anxiety while organising plausible, research-based solutions that students and staff could implement for enhanced performance, quality assessment, and a supportive university climate.
This project will explore high achieving university students’ conceptions of ‘good teaching’ and ‘effective learning’ in lecture and tutorial settings, using focus group discussions, critical incident technique and photovoice.
This project aims to explore the factors that are associated with apprentices and industry trainees at levels 3 and 4 not completing their qualification.
This project aims to enhance tertiary STEM students’ generic thinking skills through the regular use of puzzles, paradoxes and sophisms (PPS) as a pedagogical strategy
This NPF project will undertake a stock-take of how universities and polytechnics engage with graduate outcomes, and then conduct in-depth case studies in 4 institutions to explore examples of good practice and benefits to learners.
