VIT&L Week Opening Event


Since March 2020 higher education has experienced one of the most disruptive phases in its recent history. In a sector typified by considered, researched and incremental change, overnight everyone began emergency remote teaching, learning and assessing. The dramatic shift resulted in positives and negatives, and posed a series of questions for students, staff and other stakeholders. Though still living through the pandemic, in March 2021 fifteen partners from a range of stakeholders across the sector agreed to work together to answer one shared persistent and urgent question: In the context of Covid-19, what have we learnt and what does it mean for the future of teaching and learning in Irish higher education?

The National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education in partnership with the Higher Education Authority hosts an online launch of a new resource ‘Seven Cs for Embedding Student Success: A Toolkit for Higher Education Institutions’ designed to support the sustainable enhancement of student success across the sector. We are delighted to have Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Simon Harris TD formally launch the resource.
