Our Vision

A valued and informed teaching and learning culture in Irish higher education

Our Mission

As a national body, to lead the enhancement of teaching and learning in partnership with students, staff and leaders in Irish higher education to develop an inclusive, collaborative and innovative culture that maximises learning impact for the success of all students

Who We Are

The National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education is the national body responsible for leading and advising on the enhancement of teaching and learning in Irish higher education. In partnership with students, staff and leaders in Irish higher education, the National Forum works to develop an inclusive, collaborative and innovative culture that maximises learning impact for the success of all students.

An independent review of the National Forum, published in 2018, deemed it to be an ‘essential component of the national-level infrastructure for higher education in Ireland’ and recommended its establishment on a sustainable basis.

Our Strategic Priorities

The National Forum has identified four strategic priorities to December 2021:

The Professional Development of All Those Who Teach

Promoting evidence-based, flexible, inclusive professional development for all those who teach, reflecting the contextual needs and drivers within and across higher education institutions
