This report describes the outcome of research conducted between January and December 2008. It draws on research done in 2006, which sought to investigate media teaching developments in the secondary sector (NCEA Media Studies, in particular), and the possible consequences for media teaching (Media Studies, in particular) in the tertiary sector. The 2008 research exercise was designed to extend and expand the information gathered in the 2006 research exercise, by focusing more closely on what is happening in New Zealand classrooms, in respect of NCEA Media Studies. The emphasis in the 2008 research is on the content and delivery of Media Studies Achievement Studies, and the consequences for students, with such prior knowledge, when they encounter first year Media Studies courses in New Zealand tertiary institutions.
