Reports

This 2006 report reviews the provision of LEOTC to New Zealand schools against the policies that commissioned the programme, and the current policy framework and strategic intent of the Ministry of Education. Consultation was also undertaken with user-schools in to assess satisfaction. This review was conducted by Michael Deaker.

This report is a summary of research on the effectiveness of Ministry of Education-funded programmes that offer contextualised learning beyond the classroom. It was conducted by a team from the University of Waikato’s Centre for Science and Technology Education Research and the Wilf Malcolm Institute of Educational Research.
