This resource was developed from the SATLE 2018 initiative: Higher Education Language Educators’ Competences.

The HELECs Project is funded by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

This inter-institutional project investigates the range of language teacher skills needed in higher education (HE). The purpose of the project is to develop an empirically informed professional development framework.

The framework will provide individual teachers and programme developers with a reference point and practical tools, based on a comprehensive profile of language teaching skills, to ensure that all HE language teachers are appropriately supported in their work.

The HELECs Team comprises Applied Linguists and language education experts from four partner universities , UCC (Lead), DCU, MU and WIT.

Finally, there are increasing pressures on researchers to be aware of and comply with obligations under intellectual property and data protection law, and to ensure the proper management of their research data. This course seeks to provide researchers and research support staff with the tools necessary to navigate these issues.

This workbook takes the student on a conceptual journey aiding their understanding of what is meant by the quantitative-qualitative research process in contemporary legal empirical research.
