Developing Enabling Policies for Digital and Open Teaching and Learning
June 13, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm
A participatory workshop for all engaged in institutional policy development with respect to digital and open teaching and learning.
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 Dr. Catherine Cronin (Strategic Education Developer, National Forum) and guest speakers will include Dr. Tony Murphy (Head , Quality Enhancement and Innovation in Teaching and Learning, Dublin Business School), Dr. Fiona Chambers (Head, School of Education, University College Cork), Dave Sammon (Professor, Information Systems), and John Cox (University Librarian, National University of Ireland Galway).
