Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

“Research which the project partners have conducted over the past year has identified a number of key areas where online flexible support is best focused. Based on these findings and expertise within the group, the aim of the project is to develop online resources and activities in three broad areas: Digital Literacies for Language Development: for example, privacy, copyright, register, online communities, netiquette, online identity, boundaries, plagiarism. This will work within the National Framework for Digital Skills being developed by the All Aboard Project. Language Learning Strategies and Practices: for example, oral and other skills, intercultural competence, lexis and grammar, register and domains of use, use of digital resources including CALL resources Transitions to Third Level Language Learning Environments: for example, expectations, autonomy, self-directed learning, resilience, motivation, time management, confidence, affective issues. The portal will be freely available and scalable for use in other contexts. The contents and activities will afford integration into many programmes currently on offer in HE”.

In the denouement of the COVID-19 pandemic, talk of a return to “normalcy” in higher education belies the great challenges and ongoing disruptions that yet lie ahead for many institutions. Public perceptions of the value of postsecondary education continue their downward slide, placing institutions in the position of having to demonstrate their worth and find solutions to declining enrollments. Data and analytics capabilities continue to evolve, introducing new opportunities and new risks to the institution. Chief among these capabilities, generative AI promises to change teaching and learning in ways many of us have yet to fully understand or prepare for.

For this year’s teaching and learning Horizon Report, expert panelists’ discussions highlighted and wrestled with these present and looming challenges for higher education. This report summarizes the results of those discussions and serves as one vantage point on where our future may be headed.
