Event description
A participatory workshop for all engaged in institutional policy development with respect to digital and open teaching and learning.

About this Event

This workshop is open to all in Irish higher education, particularly those engaged in institutional policy development with respect to digital and open teaching and learning.

Workshop participants will have the opportunity to review and discuss various digital/open policies and policymaking approaches and consider approaches that are relevant to their own contexts. The workshop will also share policy resources, including the National Forum's Guide to Developing Enabling Policies for Digital Teaching and Learning. Overall, the focus will be on policymaking approaches that are effective, inclusive and responsive across all aspects: policy elements, core processes and partners, consideration of risks and benefits, policy implementation and review.

The workshop will be facilitated by Catherine Cronin (Strategic Education Developer, National Forum) and guest speakers will include Tony Murphy (Head , Quality Enhancement and Innovation in Teaching and Learning, Dublin Business School), Niamh Brennan (Programme Manager for Research Informatics, Trinity College Library), Brendan Murphy (Head of Quality, Teaching and Learning, LIT) and Sarah O'Toole (Educational Technologist, LIT).
