The Irish National Digital Experience (INDEx) Survey was a national survey of the digital engagement, experiences and expectations of students and staff who teach in Irish higher education that took place in autumn 2019 across 32 higher education institutions. The survey was coordinated and managed by the National Forum in partnership with members of the higher education community. The aim was to highlight what makes a difference to students and staff who teach in Irish higher education, providing an evidence base to inform decision-making and future enhancement of digital teaching and learning.

The full INDEx report can be accessed here; the summary report can be accessed here.

The INDEx report includes findings across five themes:

  • Digital teaching and learning practices
