Address at the launch of The Hidden Lives of Learners, by Graham Nuthall

Rt Hon Helen Clark, Prime Minister

It’s a great pleasure for me to launch The Hidden Lives of Learners, a book which distils and clearly expresses the fruits of Professor Graham Nuthall’s outstanding academic career.

Over half a century Graham Nuthall pioneered research into how students learn, how teachers teach, and what happens between a student and a teacher.

Graham realised how little we knew about what characterises good teaching and good learning. He looked at learning from students’ perspectives. He believed that education should be student-focused, personalised and student driven.
