This report profiles important trends and key technologies and practices shaping the future of teaching and learning, and envisions a number of scenarios and implications for that future. The report is included as part of EDUCAUSE’s Showcase Series that spotlights the most urgent issues facing higher education.
UCC EDTL project lead Clíodhna O’Callaghan, was responsible for the design, establishment, and management of the Teach Digi initiative which aims to support UCC staff in their digital education professional development along with existing university wide supports.
Part of the Teach Digi initiative is the training series Ag Caint, which incorporates both staff and student perspectives on teaching and learning digitally. Informed heavily by student feedback, and strong student participation ensures that the concept of Students As Partners in teaching and learning is at the core of the practical advice given to teaching staff. As well as this the Remote Teaching Workshops, Getting Started With Remote Teaching, and Preparing to Teach Online series, full of tips and tools for teaching staff, have supported UCC staff in adapting their pedagogies to remote teaching. Teach Digi Roundtable events have also allowed for open, engaging discussions on topics such as Enhancing Student Interaction on Live Online Classes and Inclusive Learning.
