PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES
In Q4, three members of our education team participated in the pilot of Innopharma Education’s newly developed module ‘Learning and Teaching in Higher Education’. The pilot followed the launch of a QQI approved Teaching, Learning and Assessment strategy for the education division, and offers staff in the education team a chance to engage with current approaches and best practices in online, learner centred and inclusive teaching for the higher education sector.
Congratulations to Paula Kearney, Ann Ryan and Michael King on being the first to complete the module and thanks for contributing to our ongoing development of teaching and learning!
Education staff who are interested in opportunities to participate in the module in 2021 should contact Sandra Mooney for more information.
Over the last number of months a number of staff have participated in further education, webinars and in-house training – some examples include:
