Strategies for co-constructing an initial teacher education curriculum: A school-university partnership
Assessments are the primary means with which student academic success is measured, yet students transitioning from secondary school into large first-year classes often struggle to understand the assessment task and structures at university. This project aims to identify student assessment problems and introduce strategies to address these.
Co-operative learning made easy
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.
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.
