EdTech Seminar Series – Dr Donna Lanclos

Description

The intention of the work is to help academic staff connect and learn from each other, as well as providing insights into what people are doing in digital teaching and learning spaces, and what support in terms of technology, space, and professional development will facilitate excellent and engaged teaching and learning experiences, for staff and students alike.

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

As part of the MTU Multi Campus Engagement initiative, Dr Lanclos has been conducting qualitative research into the academic practices of teaching staff at the institutions that now form the new Munster Technological University. Rather than “starting from the future”, as it were, this collaborative project sought to examine and recognise the current workflows and digital teaching practices present in what was then ITT and CIT. Through a qualitative approach, the project represents existing teaching and learning practices via in-depth interviews and qualitative analysis, with a particular focus on how and why technology is used, and the impact of digital places and tools on teaching and learning. The intention of the work is to help academic staff connect and learn from each other, as well as providing insights into what people are doing in digital teaching and learning spaces, and what support in terms of technology, space, and professional development will facilitate excellent and engaged teaching and learning experiences, for staff and students alike.

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.
