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.

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 Fledgling Project reviewed assessment and feedback strategies of a final year early childhood studies professional practice placement in which students create and run a community-based parent and toddler group. A student practical guide was developed which includes feedback/guidance from past students, graduates, parents and employers.
