Ako Aotearoa Report: Sustained Improvements in Teaching and Learning in Engineering Education


February 2013

University of Waikato researchers have participated in a collaborative project that aimed to bring together engineering education leaders from New Zealand engineering degree-granting institutions to scope and develop a strategy to support sustained improvements in engineering teaching and learning. The project team, led by The University of Waikato's Professor Janis Swan, included Dr Elizabeth Godfrey and Dr Rob Torrens, and researchers from The University of Auckland, Manukau Institute of Technology and Otago Polytechnic.

The engineering education community shared best practice of curriculum design, delivery, student assessment, evaluation, quality control and teaching resources. From this collaboration a list of recent and current engineering education projects have been collated. Over the longer-term this collaborative group will look to develop and lead projects that improve teaching practice and learning outcomes across tertiary engineering education.
