Event description
This seminar showcases a community of practice approach to professional development digital portfolios in higher education.

About this event

Dr. Orla Flynn, President of Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT), will deliver the opening address. This will be followed by a keynote speech from Margaret Keane, Teaching and Learning Development Officer at University of Ireland, Maynooth (NUIM). The keynote theme is professional development in higher education in Ireland.

The seminar addresses how the National Forum's Professional Development Framework course - PACT - was embedded into the GMIT curriculum. Professional development digital portfolios by academic staff on a GMIT level 9 accredited Professional Development Framework Portfolio module will be showcased. This module was developed by the GMIT T&L Office in 2019, and its rollout forms part of a National Forum Teaching and Learning SATLE initiative (Strategic Alignment of Teaching and Learning Enhancement). The module was piloted in 2020, in dialogue with the National Forum, and is the subject of an action research study led by Dr. Kate Dunne and Dr. Pauline Logue.

Lastly, the seminar will facilitate an open discussion on fostering a national ‘community of practice' , centred around higher education professional development.
