Simulations offer real experiences for learners. This project evaluates a simulation programme for mental health workers who interact with people who 'hear voices'. It will be helpful for tertiary teachers who want to use simulation in their courses.
This project uncovers and documents the teaching strategies at Whitireia New Zealand which have been successful with Māori, Pacific and youth learners. It includes a full report and a resource booklet which will be useful for any tertiary teacher.
This paper outlines an initiative to achieve systemic change in the teaching culture of a faculty through providing staff with teaching supports and resources embedded within the University’s reward and recognition processes. It explains why this initiative is important and describes the evaluation plan.
This project evaluated a system for performing student evaluations of teaching at one tertiary organisation. In this context, such evaluations are used as an important component of the performance review of staff. Its intention was to develop a system which was more responsive to the partnership between teachers and learners, and reflective of a constructivist approach to learning.
This study reviews the reform of the quality assurance system for tertiary education in New Zealand, and provides recommendations for how the system might benefit from greater attention to 'outcome' evaluation indicators and the investigation of the 'key processes' contributing to outcomes.
This study examines how the peer review process has been shaped by research assessment exercises. It investigates the implications of these processes for editors, and examines the responsibilities of four key actors in this process: authors, reviewers, editors and the scholarly community.
This project asked research repository managers to submit a case study on the ways in which their organisation has delivered the requirements for the various quality assurance instruments in New Zealand (the Performance-Based Research Fund) and Australia (Excellence in Research for Australia).
This project uses data from the leaders of business schools in Europe, the United States, and New Zealand, in order to explore the motivations of business schools to gain accreditation with three major accrediting bodies: AACSB International, EFMD and AMBA.
