Six projects funded for 2013

The Teaching and Learning Research Initiative (TLRI) has allocated funding to six projects in its 2012 funding round.

The fund aims to build knowledge about teaching and learning that will lead to significantly improved outcomes for learners.

Expressions of interest for the 2012 funding round closed in May. A selection panel drew up a shortlist of applicants, who then submitted a full proposal. The fund is open to the early childhood, school and post-school sectors.

Spotlight on school sector TLRI Research

Over the past two years the TLRI advisory board has commissioned a series of reviews looking at the contribution of the TLRI to knowledge building about teaching and learning. Previous reviews have looked at research in the early years and in the tertiary sector.

TLRI to issue a request for proposals (RFP)

TLRI Programme Director Robyn Baker explains the decision to introduce an RFP process for some TLRI Funding

This year we are introducing a new strand to the TLRI in the form of a request for proposals (RFP).

We are doing this after a two-year review process. We commissioned in-depth  reviews  of TLRI work in the early childhood and tertiary sectors, each exploring the contribution  the TLRI has made to teaching and learning. In each case symposiums were held to discuss and build on the review papers.

Spotlight on tertiary years TLRI Research

On 22 November we held a symposium to explore what we have learnt about teaching and learning in the tertiary sector through the collective work of the TLRI. The aim was to look at the knowledge that has been generated, how it has been used and where the gaps and next priorities lie.

Nick Zepke and Linda Leach of Massey University were commissioned to review the TLRI projects that have been carried out in the tertiary sector to date. A response was made to their paper from Ako Aotearoa. A summary of the discussion at the symposium is also available.
