From 2019, the Enhancing Digital Teaching and Learning (EDTL) project hired more than 25 student associate interns to work with project staff in each of the seven IUA universities (Dublin City University, Trinity College Dublin, Maynooth University, University College Cork, University College Dublin, University of Galway, and University of Limerick) in creating digital resources to support teaching and learning. Interns had to be actively enrolled as students in one of the partner universities at the time of their internship.
The purpose of the Graduate Attributes Programme is to deliver a suite of Transition modules to enable a successful student journey and to prepare students for their future. Transition Through initiatives provide targeted supports, deliver skills training and develop graduate attributes and values that go beyond disciplinary content knowledge and can be applied in life-wide contexts.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the field of education, with the forced move of many activities to online environments. This has led to the adoption of a series of changes that focus on students' intelligence, resilience, and emotional intelligence.
At a time of continuing and globally driven change, and with the growing importance of the student voice in quality, the national level of decision-making is a crucial arena for building partnership in quality.
