Results for Supporting Learners
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.
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.
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.
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.
Certificate Programmes and Beyond: A Longitudinal Study Tracking the Pathways and Factors Influencing Students’ Choices
This project focuses on testing a new collaborative approach to mentoring between an employer, Downer NZ, andtwo ITO's: Connexis and Primary ITO
This project identified 10 effective strategies that teachers can use within a blended learning environment to enhance learner engagement and achievement.
This highly collaborative project builds on successful work we funded in 2008, ITO Workplace Assessment Structures, led by the Industry Training Federation. The project reviews the principles identified in the earlier study and explores how these principles have been put into practice through a series of case studies at the partnering ITOs.
