Results for Workplace Learning
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.
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.
Evaluating the effectiveness of support interventions for dyslexic learners in multiple learning environments
This project explores what interventions work best to assist adults with dyslexia in multiple environments including the home, classroom, and workplace.
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.
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.
The project sought to actively improve the measure of success for Māori by supporting organisations to shift cultural practice by addressing internal cultural competency and best practice methods.
This project presents the results from a pilot of community-based Medicines and Health Literacy Clinics with final-year pharmacy students at the University of Otago.
The clinics are intended to not only provide an authentic learning experience for the students themselves, but also to create an opportunity for improving health literacy amongst the Otago population.
The clinics offer a patient-centred health information opportunity to improve health literacy in the community.
The HLMC (also known as a ‘Brown Bag Medication Review’) encourages patients to bring all of their medicines and supplements to a community setting without appointment or cost.
Typical discussions centre around answering patient concerns, verifying what is being taken, identifying medication interactions or errors and improving aspects of adherence.
Multiliteracies-based e-assessments: Guidelines for effective assessment for learning in Level 2-5 programmes post-qual review
This project’s primary aim is to develop guidelines for the effective implementation of e-assessments within an Aotearoa/NZ context, through the analysis of innovative e-assessment approaches.
