Media release: Research projects to improve outcomes for learners share $1.3 million in funding

The Teaching and Learning Research Initiative (TLRI) has awarded over $1.3 million in funding to eight projects, which are expected to improve outcomes for learners.

All the projects are based on partnerships between researchers and educators, but diverge from there to span the curriculum across the early childhood, school, and tertiary sectors. The eight projects are summarised below, and include goal setting for schools, effective mathematics teaching in Māori medium settings, and the potential of online citizen science.

The TLRI has been operating since 2003, and this allocation means a total of 145 projects have been funded. The fund has an annual budget of $1.5 million, available for projects that may run for 1 to 3 years.

The TLRI is funded by the New Zealand government and administered by the New Zealand Council for Educational Research | Rangahau Mātauranga o Aotearoa.
