The aim of this project is to develop and implement a framework for feedback as a process in which learners are involved, for use in clinical settings in a frequent, informal and efficient way.
Knowing Practice is a study of practice-based learning across different occupations. In the trades, practice-based learning is usually called “apprenticeship”. In information technology industries, it’s known as “cadetship”. In the later stages of formal learning in medicine, social work, and teaching, it’s “practicum” or vocational “immersion”.
Our aim is to understand the way in which practice-based learning operates across three different occupational fields:
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 collaborative project between Victoria University of Wellington and WelTec aims to assist tutors at New Zealand polytechnics to meet the literacy needs of all students, and in particular, Pasifika students.
This project will track the success of engineering students who attended a flipped classroom in their first year of study and compare their progress to individuals who undertook an equivalent class in a traditional setting.
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.
