Building of an earlier Ako Aotearoa Regional Hub Project Fund project, (Luafutu-Simpson, P. et al., 2015), this collaborative project is focused on the implementation and monitoring of a Pasifika Success Toolkit in the Canterbury tertiary education organisations (Canterbury, Lincoln University and Ara Institute of Canterbury) . The longer view is to share the successful work and generalizable findings across, ideally, sub-sectors.
This project developed and evaluated a suite of scenarios that can be used as real-time role-plays that enhance communication skills. Through these role-plays, learners can gain experience in realistic and challenging situations where they need to rapidly respond in an uncertain environment, and effectively communicate with a range of stakeholders.
Led by Ako Aotearoa, with support from the Tertiary Education Commission and the Ministry of Education, this project resulted in advice and recommendations that will improve the outcomes and experiences of priority learners in our tertiary system.
The aim of the project was to identify, explore and share with the tertiary community, a variety of examples of inquiry-based learning at undergraduate level across a range of institutions and disciplines.
Alongside the development of a longitudinal programme to develop students information literacy and pre-writing skills, this work will explore with students methods of developing academic ‘voice’. A mixed method approach will be adopted; qualitative and quantitative data will be collected.
Ka Whānau Mai Te Reo: i roto i te wānanga is a Kaupapa Māori research project focusing on whānau experiences of reo Māori education in tertiary settings, with a specific focus on Te Wānanga o Raukawa. It sits within the kaupapa of reo Māori revitalisation, and contributes to ensuring te reo Māori remains a living spoken language.
Our congratulations go to Matiu Ratima who recently completed his PhD, one of three supported by Ako Aotearoa through the 2008 round of the National Project Fund. His thesis sought to answer the question: what factors help or hinder adult Māori second language learners to become proficient speakers of te reo Māori?
