Description

Reflecting on the response by the higher education community to the challenges involved in the sudden relocation of teaching and learning away from their on-campus contexts in March 2020

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

Following the closure of higher education institutions across Ireland on 12 March 2020, the entire higher education community mobilised at speed to ensure student learning could continue through online/remote teaching and assessment approaches. With a view to capturing what had been learned from this extraordinary semester, the National Forum reached out to key contacts across the sector. This briefing paper summarises the insights they shared and considers what their insights mean for the enhancement of teaching and learning in the near and longer-term future.
