The National Forum for the enhancement of Teaching and Learning welcomed the recommendations of the Higher Education System Framework 2018-2020, announced today (Monday 15 January 2018) by the Minister for Education and Skills, Richard Bruton T.D. and the Minister of State for Higher Education, Mary Mitchell O’Connor T.D. The Framework sets six key objectives, two of which focus strongly on teaching and learning, which, in collaboration with the HEA and the sector, is central to the National Forum’s mission.
In the next phase of its work, the Forum will work to create rich opportunities for national and international engagement which will enhance the learning environment in higher education. Guided by the best research and practice, the Forum is committed to working closely with the sector to support development, innovation, and enhancement of teaching and learning in higher education.
Speaking on behalf of the Forum Professor Sarah Moore said, “I particularly welcome the Framework’s strong focus on teaching and learning. Many of Ireland’s higher education programmes and initiatives are already at the forefront internationally. The Forum looks forward to continuing to work with higher education institutions to ensure the very best learning experiences and environments for our students and teachers”.
The Framework acknowledges improvements across the higher education system in teaching and learning due to the innovative approach the Forum has undertaken to date.
