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.
A Review of the Existing Higher Education Policy Landscape for Digital Teaching and Learning in Ireland
This review maps the policy landscape for digital teaching and learning across higher education in Ireland, describing existing perspectives and practices and explaining how policies can enable excellent practice.
The guide provides a stepped approach to developing an enabling policy for digital teaching and learning.
Following the format of most National Forum initiatives and reports, the guide was developed following consultation across the sector in conjunction with a review of policies in Ireland and abroad.
