Good teachers/tutors make the difference

Note: The quality of teacher/tutors is directly related to outcomes.

Chauvel (2014) notes:

New Zealand research conducted over the last 10 years has consistently highlighted that the quality of teaching and the effectiveness of the learning environments facilitated by teaching staff is crucial to Pasifika and Māori learner engagement in tertiary education. As stated by Alton-Lee (2003): “…high achievement for diverse groups of learners is an outcome of the skilled and cumulative pedagogical actions of teaching in creating and optimising an effective learning environment… Quality teaching influences the quality of student participation, involvement and achievement (including social outcomes)” (p.1-2).

Supporting teachers and tutors is pivotal to improving learning outcomes. Not sure why this is argued?
