NEW Online Course: Getting Started with Personal & Professional Digital Capacity

November 8 - December 17

The National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education are delighted to announce the *new* fully online Getting Started with Personal & Professional Digital Capacity Open Course will run this November in partnership with the IUA-led Enhancing Digital Teaching and Learning (EDTL) project team.

What: This 6 week course is designed to place you on your digital development pathway, by supporting you to reflect on your own strengths, needs and goals in the digital learning environment, as well as those of your students. Using a pedagogy-first approach, you will identify some key areas for personal development in the digital space and use structured tools for planning technology-based learning activities.

Available to: Staff currently working in Higher Education or Further Education and Training in the Republic of Ireland. Places allocated on a first come first served basis. Participants should be teaching or in a role that supports student learning, where it is possible to plan and evaluate a digital teaching enhancement.

When: The course runs from 8 November to 17 December 2021. For those who wish to complete the facilitator training, the final week will take place in the week of 10 January.

Workload and Format: The workload for the course is 25 learner hours, plus 5 for facilitator training. There are just two scheduled synchronous webinars, in weeks 1 and 5, which will be recorded for anybody who can’t join live.

Note: The course is designed to support reflection on your own strengths, needs and goals in the digital learning environment, and to identify key areas for development in the digital space. It is light in content and does not provide technical training, but rather imparts a structure for individual exploration and development.

Facilitators: the course will be facilitated by members of the EDTL project team, from across the IUA member institutions. The facilitator team include: Sharon Flynn (IUA), David Hamill (TCD), Rob Lowney (DCU), Kate Molloy (NUIG), David Moloney (UL), Morag Munro (MU), Cliodhna O’Callaghan (UCC), Mairéad O’Reilly (UCD), Suzanne Stone (DCU)
