Developing Enabling Policies for Digital and Open Teaching and Learning

13th June 2019 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm

A participatory workshop for all engaged in institutional policy development with respect to digital and open teaching and learning.

About this Event

This workshop, open to all in Irish higher education, will provide an opportunity for those engaged in institutional policy development with respect to digital and open teaching and learning to share challenges and aims and to explore relevant digital/open policies and policy resources from higher education institutions and other bodies within and outside of Ireland.

Workshop participants will have the opportunity to review and discuss digital/open policymaking approaches relevant to their own contexts – with a focus on approaches that are effective, inclusive and responsive across all aspects: policy elements, core processes and partners, consideration of risks and benefits, policy implementation and review.

The workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Catherine Cronin (Strategic Education Developer, National Forum) and guest speakers will include Dr. Tony Murphy (Head of Quality Enhancement and Innovation in Teaching and Learning, Dublin Business School), Dr. Fiona Chambers (Head, School of Education, University College Cork), and John Cox (University Librarian, National University of Ireland), who will share and reflect upon their experiences with digital/open policy development.

This workshop supports the strategic aims of the National Forum in 2019-21 to inform and support the development of national and institutional policies related to teaching and learning in an open digital world. The workshop will build on resources already created by the National Forum, in particular the Guide to Developing Enabling Policies for Digital Teaching and Learning.

The event will start at 10.30 with coffee/tea

Workshop from 11.00-15:30, including a break for lunch at 13:00.
