Building on the expertise of a project team that included international officers, education managers, researchers, instructional designers and academics, the Live and Learn in Ireland project produced open-source digital resources to assist the transition to Ireland of international students. Informed by a survey of 573 international students across five higher education institutions, an online portal was developed including digital open educational resources focused on the academic, social and practical aspects of transitioning to higher education in Ireland with the aim of assisting students and staff to work towards an enhanced teaching and learning experience.
