The National Forum’s 2016-18 Enhancement Theme focused on Assessment OF/FOR/AS Learning in Irish higher education. In addition, a recent National Forum project focused on Enabling Policies for Digital Teaching and Learning (National Forum, 2018a). This Forum Insight draws on the findings from these two National Forum projects, to inform and encourage discussion around assessment policies in Irish higher education.
This Forum Insight outlines eight steps involved in developing an enabling policy for digital teaching and learning.
