ILT Testimonials


Professional development and networking

“I just wanted to pass on my thanks for the wonderful sessions and half-day seminar that you developed and led. The depth of teaching experience, passion for teaching and students as well as collegial sharing and exploration was so evident. I greatly enjoyed, and learned from, the really thoughtfully framed sessions”. Lynne Petersen, Academic Director (BPharm)


“I’ve been to every single learn do share and what I particularly like is that it is normally “stories from the trenches”.  Real people talking about what they tried.  I do like that the stories are slowly becoming more evidence based i.e. linking in to the academic literature.  I think this shows the impact of ILT” An attendee of the Learn do Share annual symposium


“It was an interesting and useful workshop to understand the tutoring responsibilities and rights”. A new GTA (from the GTA induction program)


“This was the first time I have attended. I was very impressed and will come to future events”. An attendee of a professional development event


Learning, curriculum and instructional design

“ILT helped us develop a structure in Canvas that enables students to find information easily and consistently. They have also helped us to redesign our content and pedagogies around student learning outcomes to ensure better effectiveness in our course delivery.” Professor Paul Rose, ACTGFN Department


“Thank you so much for the great workshop today [using the Business School new template].  We were very appreciative of your time and expertise.  Feedback from my colleagues was that they found it of huge value and having you both there to discuss and guide them made a big difference”. Andrew Eberhard, Director of Business masters (GSM)


“Dr Nabeel Albashiry, who has been working with us shoulder to shoulder and week by week in terms helping us with course redesigning, developing learning objective, designing Canvas pages and monitoring all course activities during the semester. So, I believe Dr Nabeel deserves special thanks for such great help in this semester” Dr. Davood Askarany, ACTGFN department


“I went through the draft module . . . on Canvas carefully. All I can say is – WOW Narissa, I am so incredibly impressed by what you’ve achieved in less than a working day from the time I sent you the content files. You are AMAZING!”. Karen Fernandez, Associate professor, Marketing.


Learning technologies

“I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to Sally for her time and contribution to this teaching innovation for course BUSMGT 714. With the new [flipped classroom] approach I have found that students were more engaged, and they were more confident to answer my questions in class. I can also save more time from discussing some questions that they already understood, and allocate more time to some difficult questions”


“It’s a great and informative session. All my queries have been well addressed. Strongly recommended to all other teaching staff”. Canvas support


“Thanks [Sally] for all your help with 201 grades. We can finally see the light coming out of that (long) tunnel”


“The training session is very helpful and informative. I learnt something new in the session though I have used Canvas for a while. It covers a wide range of how to in a relatively short time. The answers to questions are clear”. Canvas support


Developing students’ capabilities

“[I liked] the open, discussion-based approach to learning and the handouts that we could write on were really useful. The small groups were also very helpful, and encouraged students to speak up and seek clarity on areas they didn’t understand” An undergrad student


“Each workshop helped me build a better understanding of the lectures and their contents because almost always, they broke it down into smaller “chunks” that made it easier to absorb”. An undergrad student


“I just wanted to give you an update on my progress since meeting you in September. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. My essays went from my first mark of 40% (before meeting you) to 94% for my final one. I pulled my 40% essay subject up to a B+ and received an A+ for the other two. Thank you once again – you made a huge difference to me” A postgrad student


“I am an international student and I’ve attended the Comlaw workshop. It was helpful to use strategies to learn about the NZ law system. The guides from the teacher in the workshop really assisted me in better understanding”. An undergrad student
