The University of Auckland, University of Waikato, Massey University, University of Canterbury, and private training establishment (PTE) the Solomon Group talk about organisational changes they are making to deliver better outcomes for their learners.

Holistic learner supports and Teaching and learning are two learner success capabilities (PDF 335 KB) that a tertiary education provider needs to get right to enable learners to succeed, whatever that looks like for each learner.

The Tertiary Education Commission is hosting alongside the sector a series of learner success capability sessions. The goal of these sessions is to bring together tertiary providers in the spirit of learning, knowledge sharing, and collaboration, as well as enhance individual, group, and organisational development.

We are pleased to share with you recordings of the different organisational approaches showcased at the Holistic learner supports and Teaching and learning Learner Success Capability sessions.
