The emergence of digital technology has created exciting opportunities in higher education as well as a new set of policy-related challenges and considerations for teaching and learning.

The National Forum’s Enabling Policies for Digital Teaching and Learning project aimed to build awareness and capacity in policy development for digital teaching and learning across Irish higher education. Following extensive research and consultation across the sector, the project resulted in a review of the existing higher education policy landscape for digital teaching and learning in Ireland and a guide to developing enabling policies for digital teaching and learning.

It is intended that this review and guide will assist those developing policies to do so in a way that is mindful of both what is important to the institution and also what is achievable in practice.
