WMIER/FEDU awarded TLRI projects

WMIER and Faculty of Education awarded the majority of TLRI projects

The Wilf Malcolm Institute of Educational Research (WMIER) and Te Kura Toi Tangata Faculty of Education have successfully secured four of the six Teaching and Learning Research Initiative (TLRI) projects that have been awarded nationally starting in 2017.

These projects build on the collaborative and innovative research being undertaken by our education researchers. They are indicative of the quality of this research and our partnerships with the sector.

The projects are: Using mobile learning in free-choice educational settings to enhance ecological literacy led by Chris Eames and Claudio Aguayo; Using a wellbeing framework to recognise, value and enhance the broad range of outcomes for learners in adult literacy and numeracy programmes led by Jane Furness and Judy Hunter; Age-responsive pedagogies: ‘Preschool’ ECE teachers interrogate their dialogues with and about two year-olds led by Jayne White and An Architecture of Ownership in an innovative learning environment led by Noeline Wright and Rachel McNae.  Each project is worth $200 000 over two years.
