Results for Quality Improvement
This partnership project (NZUSA and Waiariki Institute of Technology) builds on work that NZUSA has been leading on utilising student voice. The project aims to produce a toolkit of methods to develop student representative systems amongst students who are in short-term and lower level courses.
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 National Project Fund project examined the extent to which teaching practices are currently informed by learner feedback in New Zealand.
