The late Dr. Vince Ham

Vince Ham, a former New Zealand Rhodes Scholar, was a founding director of CORE Education in 2003, and undertook the role of Director of Research. Vince had particular interest in educational research methods, especially action research, the professional learning of teachers and teacher educators, and the use of ICTs for teaching and learning.

The Vince Ham Scholarship was set up in honour of Vince's contribution to education.

Tribute to Dr Vince Ham

Tomokia te ao, te ao whatu tāngata, tātai ki runga, tātai ki raro, tātai aho rau, haumi e, hui e, tāiki e.

Tēnei te reo pōhiri ki ngā muka tāngata katoa huri noa kia tono mai mō tēnei wānanga whakangugnu kaiako ki raro i te maru o Tātai Aho Rau o CORE Education.

Tātai Aho Rau is a concept that drives our professional practice at CORE Education.  It encapsulates four key elements: Whakapapa, Reo, Tikanga and Wairua.

CORE Education’s mission is to push the boundaries of educational possibility. We support this mission by by collaborating with educators to develop, improve, and disseminate powerful knowledge and practice that supports effective and equitable teaching and learning.

The Vince Ham Research Scholarship supports educators to conduct supported inquiry and teacher research in two ways: either by providing financial and mentoring support for a supported research inquiry into a research question or wondering of your choice; or by supporting course costs for a postgraduate education dissertation or thesis. Please ensure your inquiries contribute to the research and thinking about effective and equitable teaching and learning.
