Telecollaboration – a catalyst for internationalisation at home


This VITAL event seeks to build upon previous National Forum seminars/webinar by further exploring the potential offered by new technologies to revitalise language teaching and broaden the skillset of Irish learners.

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

The keynote speaker Robert O’Dowd will emphasise the need to prioritise telecollaboration at policy level. Representatives from emerging Technological University in Letterkenny, Sligo and Galway will explore ways of embedding telecollaboration into programmes and create learning opportunities for ‘internationalisation at home’.
Representatives from the Post-Primary Languages Ireland will describe the Languages Connect strategy and how they are supporting teachers to embrace virtual exchange. Finally, best practice models of telecollaboration will be shared by third level practitioners and E-twinning ambassadors at second level.

This Facilitator Checklist has been compiled from our experience as facilitators delivering the PACT Open Course with the National Forum.

This resource is a digital toolkit to support students in health and social care professions who are learning clinical and professional competencies through technology (including telepractice and simulation). The toolkit includes interactive resources to support learning and enhance technology-enabled practice education.

This OER investigates the role of digital technology in the acquisition of practical skills in health sciences. While it is commonly accepted that theoretical knowledge can be imparted using technology, how best to use technology to support practical skill acquisition is a growing area which presents many opportunities.
