Results for Supporting Learners
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 examine student’s responses in respect of their key tasks, learning outcomes and overall experience from a work-based experiential practicum programme in sport management. Understanding student’s perceptions will help to inform and change teaching practice through increased focus on specific graduate attributes and a broader range of added value aspects of WIL programmes that have been highlighted in previous research
Building of an earlier Ako Aotearoa Regional Hub Project Fund project, (Luafutu-Simpson, P. et al., 2015), this collaborative project is focused on the implementation and monitoring of a Pasifika Success Toolkit in the Canterbury tertiary education organisations (Canterbury, Lincoln University and Ara Institute of Canterbury) . The longer view is to share the successful work and generalizable findings across, ideally, sub-sectors.
The aim of this project is to produce a guide for good doctoral writing feedback practice so that supervisor and advisor learning enables smoother doctoral candidate’s learning.
This project will develop a model that provides a cohesive, whole-organisation approach to professional development for teachers of under-25 students in institutes of technology, polytechnics and wānanga.
This highly collaborative project builds on successful work we funded in 2008, ITO Workplace Assessment Structures, led by the Industry Training Federation. The project reviews the principles identified in the earlier study and explores how these principles have been put into practice through a series of case studies at the partnering ITOs.
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 new project, jointly commissioned by the Ministry for Women and Ako Aotearoa, seeks to increase the participation and success of women in construction and engineering related trades where they are traditionally under-represented.
