ODL and Workplace Learning TVET Programmes in New Zealand
This report shares the findings of research seeking to understand the contribution and value of combining workplace-based learning with open and distance learning (ODL) and technology-enhanced learning (TEL) in technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in New Zealand. The research was conducted through three case studies focusing on adult teaching, carpentry, and health and well-being qualifications. The case studies are in Appendices One, Two and Three of this report. This thematic report draws on the findings from these case studies and describes the approaches these organisations use to ODL and workplace learning, the barriers and enablers, and the value of the approaches to the organisations, employers, learners and trainees/apprentices.
