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

From the authors: “Students work through the questions on the assessment rating their level of competence. As they do this it is crucial to their own development that they fully reflect upon their findings. Each question on the form asks the learner to provide evidence of how they can demonstrate that they have attained a specific employability skill. The learners are prompted to use the STAR model to demonstrate their competence. This model allows for critical reflection and action evidence that can be drawn upon as students prepare for moving into the work place or further student.”

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.
