Evaluating the effectiveness of support interventions for dyslexic learners in multiple learning environments
This project explores what interventions work best to assist adults with dyslexia in multiple environments including the home, classroom, and workplace.
Ka Whānau Mai Te Reo: i roto i te wānanga is a 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.
This project seeks to collaboratively develop, implement and evaluate a cohesive, evidence-based academic and cognitive skills programme for Māori students within a Maori-medium initial teacher education programme.
The overarching aim of the project is to understand first-year New Zealand students’ experience with assessment anxiety while organising plausible, research-based solutions that students and staff could implement for enhanced performance, quality assessment, and a supportive university climate.
This highly 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 project will explore high achieving university students’ conceptions of ‘good teaching’ and ‘effective learning’ in lecture and tutorial settings, using focus group discussions, critical incident technique and photovoice.
In this project we will adapt the successful LEARNZ Geohazard virtual fieldtrip (VFT) from the compulsory education sector to suit university field sciences. General criticisms of virtual learning include lack of community, slow feedback, and less motivated students. LEARNZ VFT’s are aligned with Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles, to specifically address these criticisms.
In this study, we aim to define mathematical maturity and develop pedagogy to help students improve this skill. We aim to help students develop their mathematical thinking and reasoning skills, mathematical transfer skills, and overall mathematical performance.
This project will explore the ways to implement the concept of making graduates from New Zealand tertiary education organisations (TEO) employable. The findings and outputs from this project are expected to not only formalise the employability practices of the five participating programs, but also contribute to the institution-wide strategic agenda in learning, quality and student experience.
This project aims to explore the factors that are associated with apprentices and industry trainees at levels 3 and 4 not completing their qualification.
