The National Forum Associates form an integral part of the structure of the national teaching and learning landscape. Associates, chosen by their institutions, in consultation with the National Forum, provide crucial institutional perspectives which inform strategic developments within and beyond the National Forum. Associates also ensure that the reviews, research, frameworks and initiatives of the National Forum serve to inform policy and practice at local level.  Meetings are held each semester at which National Forum Associates gather to hear about and give their input into ongoing teaching and learning enhancement efforts at national level.
