We are partnering with tertiary education organisations (TEOs) to test the Learner Success Framework.

These projects test components of the Learner Success Framework. Lessons from these projects will be shared with all TEOs and we will be progressively uploading tools and information for you to use.

Waikato Institute of Technology (Wintec)

Wintec was the first and longest running of our partner projects. It has tested the first four phases of the Learner Success Framework, from diagnostic to strategy development. Using human-centred design methodologies, Wintec has undertaken a deep and comprehensive student journey mapping exercise. Their approach has given Wintec rich insights into learner needs, and formed the basis of a new operating model for the whole of the organisation.

University of Waikato (Waikato)

We have partnered with Waikato, whose project focus is to create a robust system of learner insights and building analytical capability. This will allow them to identify teaching and learning gaps, trends, and patterns. Near-time learner insights will allow for greater access to near-time data. This includes building responsive systems that allow pro-active approaches to strengthen student success. They will also undertake student journey mapping and collect qualitative student voice data to gain a holistic and robust view of students and key attrition points.

Te Wānanga o Raukawa (Raukawa)

Changing learner demographics and demand has resulted in Raukawa undertaking a radical shift in the way it designed and delivered its education offerings, moving most of its content to a blended delivery model. We have partnered with Raukawa to support them undertake this business transformation project using a model which closely aligns with the Learner Success Framework. This provides us with an unprecedented opportunity to test the framework in a mātauranga Māori context.

Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT)

We are partnering with MIT to test the first four phases of the Learner Success Framework, from diagnostic to strategy development. The project builds on MIT’s successful Hōkūle’a Project which increased retention of Māori and Pacific learners through the early assessment of needs and provision of holistic support (academic, pastoral and cultural). MIT will research specific approaches and interventions utilised at Georgia State University. This includes: design and application of ‘meta-majors’ to reduce confusion in learner subject choice, and technology options to support early alerts.
