Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it
Before the pandemic, Lawrie Phipps and Donna Lanclos engaged in research around the practices of UK-based academics. What they learned while interviewing them about the choices they made around teaching, was that decisions about technology primarily emerged from teaching and pastoral care needs, rather than some abstracted notion of technology being “better” or “21st century.” During the current emergency, and witnessing the global impact of COVID-19, Lawrie and Donna, and colleagues from across Jisc’s R&D team have continued to talk to academics and students about their experience of teaching and learning. Conversations they witnessed across education see-saw back and forth between “Here’s a list of tools you can use to put your class online” and “Here’s how I care for my students”.
The Irish Journal of Academic Practice (IJAP) is published online once annually at Technological University Dublin. IJAP is a peer-reviewed journal that welcomes scholarly and practice-based articles, case studies, opinion & reflective pieces and reviews relating to learning, teaching, assessment and technology within higher education.

This Facilitator Checklist has been compiled from our experience as facilitators delivering the PACT Open Course with the National Forum. From our reflection, we created this resource to aid fellow facilitators save time and outlined key pre-Course, during-Course, and post-Course activities essential to the smooth running of all Open Courses.
Via the lens of graduate attribute development this toolkit highlights best examples of employability activities for higher education curriculum. Designed to enhance employability skills development as class activities and module assessments, namely via the Employability Superfoods, lecturers can enhance students’ employability learning with ease.
