Our congratulations go to Kelby Smith-Han who recently completed his PhD - ‘Just a GP’: an exploration of undergraduate medical students’ discourses of General Practice.
Ka Whānau Mai Te Reo: i roto i te wānanga is a three year (2012-2015) kaupapa Māori research project focusing on whānau experiences of reo Māori education in tertiary settings, with a specific focus on Te Wānanga o Raukawa. It sits within the kaupapa of reo Māori revitalisation, and contributes to ensuring te reo Māori remains a living spoken language.
The Student Voice: Effective Representation and Quality is a collaborative project between Ako Aoteaora and the New Zealand Union of Students’ Associations (NZUSA), that will support tertiary organisations to effectively involve learners in building and ensuring high-quality provision.
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 collaborative project is designed to develop ways of better supporting Māori PhD students through success in their studies to effective commencement of their careers.
This collaborative project between Victoria University of Wellington and WelTec aims to improve the ability of tutors at New Zealand polytechnics to meet the literacy needs of all students, and in particular, Pasifika students.
This project seeks to develop and evaluate a suite of scenarios that can be used as real-time role-plays that enhance communication skills for science learners.
Knowing Practice is a study of practice-based learning across different occupations. In the trades, practice-based learning is usually called “apprenticeship”. In information technology industries, it’s known as “cadetship”. In the later stages of formal learning in medicine, social work, and teaching, it’s “practicum” or vocational “immersion”.
Our aim is to understand the way in which practice-based learning operates across three different occupational fields:
This project aims to explore the factors that are associated with apprentices and industry trainees at levels 3 and 4 not completing their qualification.
