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

How to Choose an Open Licence is the second guide in the National Forum OER/OEP Series: Open Educational Resources and Open Educational Practices. The first guide in the series was the National Forum Open Licensing Toolkit, published in 2019. The aim of these guides, and future guides in the series, is to provide practical information for anyone wishing to use open educational resources (OER) and/or open educational practices (OEP) in order to enhance teaching and learning.

This new interdisciplinary 10 ECTS module for PhD students responds to an identified need for careers and employability support and was developed with industry partners. It supports PhD students with career planning, critical reflection and decision-making, enabling them to establish networks and build readiness for future careers in academia and/or industry. The module is in three streams (Careers, Skills and Work-based Learning) and features many innovative aspects:
– a blended learning design and 5 ECTS module option to give a flexible learning experience
– 5 interactive online sessions which build student employability skills
– 4 face-to-face sessions to enhance collaboration and engagement
– An online Skills Audit which helps students to critically reflect on, develop and articulate the skillset developed during their PhD and an Interview Practice Exercise to apply their interview skills to a role-play scenario
– a work-based learning experience that creates real value for industry partners and offers students valuable learning experiences that are not readily available elsewhere

A range of supporting activities enhance the student experience by encouraging shared and self-directed learning: online journaling and discussion boards; podcasts; videos; skills webinars and industry events. A new Industry Mentoring Programme (IMPART) was designed to complement the module.

Developed from the initiative ” Enhancing Online Language Learning: Training the trainers and engaging the learners” the LILAC Project aims to help language teachers and learners to transform digital challenges into opportunities and acquire the digital proficiency needed to maximise the benefits afforded by e-learning.

Simon Harris TD, Ireland’s Minister for Further & Higher Education, Research, Innovation & Science officially launches the report and findings from the national sectoral partnership project- Next Steps for Teaching and Learning: Moving Forward Together. The overarching aim of the ‘Next Steps’ project was to address the 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?’

This launch is the centre-piece of VIT&L Week events and activities. This event shares the findings from the project. These findings are discussed by a panel which includes student, staff, senior management, sector, system and international representatives. This Ministerial launch event is chaired and presented by Irish print and broadcast journalist Matt Cooper.
