About Student Associates
For many activities in Irish higher education, students are engaged as partners. Such activities include teaching award review panels, quality assurance protocols, national project teams and project proposal review panels. To ensure such activities are consistently informed by the experiences and perspectives of students from across the disciplines, the National Forum is collaborating with the National Student Engagement Programme to identify students interested in becoming active in teaching and learning enhancement at a national level.
What Does the Role Involve?
As a student associate of the National Forum, you will be invited to join an online community where
- your experience as a student will inform the work of the National Forum
- you will represent your own and other student views in discussions on teaching and learning
- you will provide ideas and feedback on teaching and learning initiatives
- You will contribute to identifying and designing national teaching and learning enhancement initiatives for Irish higher education.
In addition, you may be given the opportunity to join review panels to support and inform project development and to ensure all projects funded through the teaching and learning enhancement fund include students as partners.
