The aim of this project is to examine student’s responses in respect of their key tasks, learning outcomes and overall experience from a work-based experiential practicum programme in sport management. Understanding student’s perceptions will help to inform and change teaching practice through increased focus on specific graduate attributes and a broader range of added value aspects of WIL programmes that have been highlighted in previous research
This project aims to discover and disseminate pedagogies for embedding employability capabilities in advanced and research informed curricula.
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.
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.
