Ranga Auaha Ako | Learning and Teaching Design Team
Ranga Auaha Ako partners with faculties and Libraries and Learning Services, delivering projects to enhance learning and teaching. We are available to provide learning design advice and support for teaching staff. If you need advice on assessment design, making decisions with regards to digital learning, course design, relational learning, writing learning outcomes, accessibility or Canvas baseline practices, we offer up to three hours of consultation time per request. Please raise a service request through the TeachWell Consult portal.
