Sharing teaching and learning resources from Ako Aotearoa
co-funded projects and priority initiatives.
Ako Talks, launched in May 2020, is a series of short topical presentations that connect you with leading tertiary educators and their valuable learnings, insights and resources developed through our co-funded projects.
The series is designed to connect busy tertiary-focused educators, managers, support staff, employers and agencies to free, high quality, evidence-based information and resources aimed at supporting success for all learners.
Follow our Ako Aotearoa Facebook page to link to these sessions, post questions to the presenters and find out what’s on next.
