Results for Quality Improvement
Assessments are the primary means with which student academic success is measured, yet students transitioning from secondary school into large first-year classes often struggle to understand the assessment task and structures at university. This project aims to identify student assessment problems and introduce strategies to address these.
Co-operative learning made easy
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 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.
