Purpose

DELTA Awards Launch, March 21st 2017

This learning impact award type aims to add a crucial, discipline-led dimension to Ireland’s national approach to identifying excellence in teaching, augmenting the voice and perspectives of higher education students and their institutions.

Process

The award will be presented to discipline groups who can demonstrate a record of excellence in teaching and learning enhancement and who commit to an ongoing, clearly articulated, shared process of continued enhancement.

The DELTA Award will recognise and celebrate disciplines for their achievements and commitment, with particular reference to their discipline-relevant pedagogical contexts, requirements, challenges and innovations. A key focus will be on enabling disciplines to ensure that teaching and learning enhancement can also be effectively linked to other core activities – including research and scholarship – in ways that have clear benefits for learners. It will assist disciplines to link teaching and learning developments coherently with key relevant institutional, national and international drivers, while also enabling a discipline- and context-specific approach to teaching and learning enhancement.
