A collaborative project that will result in the delivery of a professional development programme to provide enhanced support for educators working with Māori and Pasifika learners in adult literacy and numeracy.
This collaborative project between Victoria University of Wellington and WelTec had the goal of assisting tutors at New Zealand polytechnics to meet the literacy needs of all students, and in particular, Pasifika students.
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 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 seeks to identify the pedagogical success factors that make a difference for Pacific learners, and to then support and mentor colleagues to test the identified pedagogical approaches into their own programmes.
