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.
Effective learner voice is central to a high-quality tertiary education system. New Zealand Union of Students’ Associations (NZUSA) has implemented a network of panels designed to gather direct learner input, feedback and commentary on education-related issues. The panels, known as the Learner Advisory Panel Project (LAPP), are conducted through an innovative online model designed to address some of the commonly reported barriers to learner participation in feedback systems.
This multi-disciplinary project plans to identify educational outcomes that enhance student attributes and capabilities beyond those normally identified on academic transcripts and develop tools to observe, analyse and report them.
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.
