Teaching & Learning Research


We are very excited to announce our recent success in The Teaching and Learning Research Initiative (TLRI) which supports partnerships between researchers and educators to improve outcomes for learners.  RKA is the only recipient within the early childhood education sector to be selected for funding in this round.  Working in partnership with Massey, Victoria and Waikato Universities the project explores teacher-child sustained shared thinking, which research suggests is critical in deepening children’s learning.
