Exploring what university teachers think about ‘education for sustainability’, ‘environmental literacy’ and their possible roles within these domainsby Shephard, Kerry
A significant exploration is underway within the University of Otago to better understand the ecological worldviews/sustainability literacy/environmental literacy of Otago’s students.
The project’s aim is to investigate the conceptions of technology held by a group of undergraduate information technology students and how those conceptions change and develop across the period of one semester.
Research and writing looking at the doctoral examination process has tended to focus on the perceptions and experiences of students, the practicalities of the viva situation, or on the ways in which examiners read doctoral theses and come to decisions about what recommendation (e.g. Pass, Minor Amendments, Resubmission, Fail etc) to make.
