Results for Supporting Learners
In this study, we aim to define mathematical maturity and develop pedagogy to help students improve this skill. We aim to help students develop their mathematical thinking and reasoning skills, mathematical transfer skills, and overall mathematical performance.
This project will develop a model that provides a cohesive, whole-organisation approach to professional development for teachers of under 25-year-old learners in institutes of technology, polytechnics and wānanga.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This collaborative project will identify critical success factors and effective models for Pasifika learners, including those generally applicable to industry training, and specific to the training models of ITOs. The project is designed to develop industry tailored toolkits on implementing and evaluating success strategies for supporting Pacific learners in industry training.
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
