The National Forum is delighted to present, ‘A Review of the Existing Higher Education Policy Landscape for Digital Teaching and Learning in Ireland’. This review maps the policy landscape for digital teaching and learning across higher education in Ireland, describing existing perspectives and practices and explaining how policies can enable excellent practice. The review is available here.
The review is supplemented by a step-by-step ‘Guide to Developing Enabling Policies for Digital Teaching and Learning’, recently published by the National Forum and available here. An insight summarising the eight steps is also now available here.
The Forum extends sincere thanks to students and staff across the sector who contributed time and energy to the National Forum’s Enabling Policies for Digital Teaching and Learning project, in which both the guide and review were rooted.
The review and guide merit wide dissemination across the sector and will form a valuable input to both the development of a Higher Education Digital Transformation Framework, a key area of focus for the Higher Education Authority, and the development of policies at institutional level.
