Ireland’s Inaugural Teaching and Learning Research Fellowships

The Teaching and Learning Research Fellowships are Ireland’s most prestigious national individual teaching and learning awards in higher education.

The Fellowships

  • recognise, reward and celebrate those who have demonstrated a deep commitment to the enhancement of teaching and learning.
  • provide an opportunity for Fellows to share their knowledge and to expand their expertise.
  • provide a robust evidence base for future teaching and learning enhancement decision-making across the sector.

The scholarly evidence generated through these Fellowships will contribute towards a valued and informed teaching and learning culture in Irish higher education.

The Fellowships were introduced by the National Forum in partnership with the Irish Research Council.
