Street law is designed to provide participants with an understanding of their legal rights and obligations and to teach the fundamental principles that underlie our legal system. This is intended to enable participants to use their knowledge to address their own real life problems and motivate them to become active participants in society with a positive attitude towards the law.
RPL Experience is an online course developed for higher education staff seeking professional development in RPL assessment skills and in supporting RPL applicants effectively in GMIT, LyIT, and IT Sligo. It provides a comprehensive overview of how RPL works and student journeys and success stories illustrate the process.
LYIT continuously strives to enhance the experience of its students. A key goal in this process is to improve student retention, in which in-class attendance has been found to play a significant role. Attendance was traditionally recorded on a paper-based system, with data being manually compiled and digitised. This proved to be both cumbersome and time consuming. Recognising that retention reporting would be best served by a user-friendly approach that would eliminate the need for paper-based documents, allow the creation
of records for lecturers and the transfer of data to administration staff for timely reporting, senior managers within LYIT sought the development of a bespoke digital attendance monitoring system.
