Award-winning research at Auckland University could boost the chances of Māori and Pasifika students completing their degrees.

Success for All project member Te Oti Rakena from the school of music says staff from the education, health and creative arts faculties and the university’s Career Centre looked at how non-lecture activities such as tutorials, mentoring and induction programmes and careers services supported Māori and Pacific student success.

He says they identified a tool-kit of techniques that can help promote learning, and also the importance of having Māori and Pasifika staff.

"The Success for All findings speak to that; that when you've got models on the staff and people they can talk to and that they know they are going to be respected, you are going to gravitate to that department and you are going to keep students and they are going to complete," Dr Rakena says.

He says it may be hard to change the teaching methods of existing staff, but the techniques are being taught to graduate students to improve the next generation of teachers.
