EDIN is the Educational Developers in Ireland Network. The mission of EDIN is to support, enhance and influence the field of academic development and practice. We achieve this by informing policy and practice in teaching and learning in Higher Education, by collaborating in research and dissemination of resources, and by providing professional development events for our members. EDIN values creative, critical, collaborative and professional approaches in supporting teaching and learning through our engagement with all sectors of Higher Education.
Membership of EDIN is open to teaching staff with a specific remit to engage with academic and educational development. Since 2008 there has been a significant increase in awareness of, and participation in, teaching and learning programmes within many colleges throughout the country. EDIN membership (currently over 120) has also created opportunities to access the collective experience and support of the Educational Developers in Ireland Network, attend and access EDIN seminars and information on other educational and academic development events in Ireland, and influence decisions in the field of learning development through formal responses to issues in the sector.
As EDIN has grown and evolved, it has begun to take on the role of leading change in the area of education development and also advocates for greater support and resourcing for teaching and learning in higher education.
