Description

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

This Forum Insight outlines the National Forum’s commitment to supporting open education principles, practices and policies in Irish higher education. In light of the growing development of open education across Europe and internationally, as well as the increasing urgency of supporting Irish higher education staff and students in an increasingly networked society, the need is clear. The National Forum Strategy 2019-21 includes a specific focus on supporting open education across all of our strategic priorities.

The concept of open scholarship has radically altered the way in which academic research operates in Europe, providing as it does both opportunities and challenges for researchers. In addition, funders are increasingly demanding that researchers, must, as a pre-requisite to securing grant funding, have undertaken training in research ethics. 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.
