Methodology:

The project will have five phases:

  • Phase 2: Māori and Pacific student perspectives (What do students think?)
  • Phase 3: Case studies of success (What works and why?)
  • Phase 4: Design of integrated framework of initiatives (What can we do and how?)
  • Phase 5: Implementation and evaluation of initiatives and ongoing refinement of learner analytics (How is it going and how can we do even better?)
