Ka whānau mai te reo: Kei tua o te kura 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.
ePosts is envisaged as a ‘sister-resource’ to Signposts and Goalposts, ie a booklet style of 10 one-page ‘primers’ written in simple, accessible language, demystifying concepts, terminology and principles.
The goal is to produce, and pilot, an entry-level handbook for new tertiary teachers, and teachers new to eLearning, so they can introduce effective, proven strategies into their own learning environments.
This project will explore the experiences of young people on the Youth Guarantee Fees-Free (YGFF) programmes, and then their journeys after their programme. This will provide information on the effectiveness of the YGFF intervention and allow young people to share their perspectives on the variety of pathways and transitions they experience. We intend to use this data to improve educational provision and outcomes for this group.
This project aimed to enhance tertiary STEM students’ generic thinking skills through the regular use of puzzles, paradoxes and sophisms (PPS) as a pedagogical strategy.
Those involved in the teaching and learning of law students will be interested in this ongoing longitudinal study of law students. It is intended that, over the course of the study, a complete law student profile will be developed which will detail the expectations, views and experiences of students during each year of their studies and in their first years in the workforce.
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.
This project aims to discover and disseminate pedagogies for embedding employability capabilities in advanced and research informed curricula.
This project will explore the ways to implement the concept of making graduates from New Zealand tertiary education organisations (TEO) employable. The findings and outputs from this project are expected to not only formalise the employability practices of the five participating programs, but also contribute to the institution-wide strategic agenda in learning, quality and student experience.
This partnership project (NZUSA and Waiariki Institute of Technology) builds on work that NZUSA has been leading on utilising student voice. The project aims to produce a toolkit of methods to develop student representative systems amongst students who are in short-term and lower level courses.
