Results for Quality Improvement
This report investigates the experiences of African doctoral students and their supervisors. It makes a number of recommendations that will lead to better outcomes for both.
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.
Weaving our worlds: Māori learner outcomes from an equity-focused strengths-based programme in Health Sciences
This project aims to enhance and then evaluate outcomes form a strengths-plus-evidence-based approach to increase the academic achievement of Māori Health Sciences Frist Year students at the University of Otago. The project and its findings have the potential for application to other educational areas and institutions.
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.
This project aims to discover and disseminate pedagogies for embedding employability capabilities in advanced and research informed curricula.
This project will explore the ways to implement the concept of making graduates from New Zealand tertiary education organisations (TEO) employable. The findings and outputs from this project are expected to not only formalise the employability practices of the five participating programs, but also contribute to the institution-wide strategic agenda in learning, quality and student experience.
