In this webinar, IUA student intern Fernandos Ongolly presents results from a qualitative study to understand the role of students as partners in digital teaching and learning based on the case of the EDTL project interns.
Between 2019 and 2021 the EDTL project hired 20 student associate interns with the aim of engaging students as co-creators in developing digital teaching and learning resources. We recruited students from across several disciplines such as Anthropology, Law, Mathematics, Engineering, Medicine, Digital Marketing, Data Science, and Journalism among other disciplines out of which 11 were enrolled at undergraduate level and 9 at postgraduate level. During the internship, all the students were actively enrolled in an ongoing course in one of the seven participating universities (DCU, UCD, MU, NUIG, UCC, TCD, and UL). These interns mostly contributed to the project through organizing webinars, writing the project newsletter, as well as sharing resources on the project social media pages among others.
