Webinar: Developing Enabling Policies for Digital and Open Teaching and Learning

10th June 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Taking place on Thursday 10 June 2021, this webinar will share developments and invite feedback on the project to develop a new National Forum ‘Guide to Developing Enabling Policies for Digital and Open Teaching & Learning’.

Institutional policy-making can, and should, engage individuals across the organisation; policy-making is not the remit of senior managers only. This is especially so when the subject of those policies are topics related to digital and open teaching and learning (T&L), e.g. Lecture Recording, Virtual Classrooms, Assessment, Open Educational Resources.

In this webinar, as in institutional policy-making, we would like to encourage as wide a range of people as possible to join the conversation. This might include people who are already involved in developing digital, open and/or T&L policies, as well as those who would like to be involved in the consultation or development of such policies, or policy briefs, procedures, guidelines. All higher education staff and students are invited to participate.

The new National Forum ‘Guide to Developing Enabling Policies for Digital and Open Teaching & Learning’ is currently being developed, drawing on wide consultation including workshops that took place across the sector in 2019, as well as conversations with many individuals who have been developing and updating institutional policies since March 2020, taking into account the new context of remote/online T&L.

During this webinar, the National Forum will share key aspects of the proposed guide and invite your feedback on important questions, including:

  • What key policy areas (in Digital/Open Teaching & Learning) should be addressed in the guide?
  • What content and tools would you expect to find in the guide, in order for it to be most useful?
  • Who is involved in policy development/consultation at your institution or organisation?
  • What are the biggest challenges for policy development at your institution or organisation?

  • Catherine Cronin, Strategic Education Developer, National Forum
  • Chloe Power, Student Associate Intern, National Forum
  • Niamh Brennan, Programme Manager for Research Informatics, Trinity College Dublin
  • Tony Murphy, Head of Quality Enhancement and Innovation in Teaching and Learning, Dublin Business School
