The teaching and learning research agenda is part of the Social Innovation pillar at Holland College and supports evidence based decisions about teaching and learning processes, and how these processes support learner success. Researchers at Holland College explore aspects of teaching and learning to build evidence for best practice models.
Research projects have included studies that have explored:
- The efficacy of classroom based phonological reading programs with adult learners who experience low literacy levels;
- The relative effectiveness of classroom-based versus computer-based reading instruction with adult learners;
- The cost and effectiveness of Adult Developmental Education in relationship to prose, document and numeracy literacy;
- The influence of computer-based literacy training on English language learners.
Partners in Holland College research include:
- Learning Policy Directorate, HRSDC
- National Literacy Secretariat
