The 2019 Teaching Fellowship was launched in TU Dublin last week at a day-long event that included an interactive lecture and workshop delivered by Professor Mick Healy on the theme of 'Students as Partners'.

Over the next two years, a Teaching Fellowship Team comprising teaching academics from across TU Dublin will collaborate to create a new, bespoke Curriculum Framework developed for, and by, students and staff of TU Dublin. The Teaching Fellows are working under the collaborative name Co-CREATE: Collaborative Curriculum Reimagining and Enhancement Aiming to Transform Education.

According to Dr. Barry Ryan, lead TU Dublin Teaching Fellow for 2019-2021, "This framework will empower the creation of rich and diverse curricula across all disciplines and levels of TU Dublin; from apprenticeship through to structured PhD. The design and development of the framework will be informed by examination of local, national and international best practice and policy, as well as the scholarly literature and consultation with all key stakeholders."

Dr. Ryan went on to say that the framework will be underpinned by the core values and mission of TU Dublin and will provide a distinctive but tangible learning philosophy for all in the university. "The framework will be considered and flexible so as to adapt to the diversity within TU Dublin, including accredited programmes, and inclusive of all learners across all areas of the university."



The Teaching Fellows of Co-CREATE will make use of existing methodologies and resources (including past Teaching Fellowships). They will also use the project team's extensive network to produce an actionable and quality curriculum framework. Its impact and influence will be evaluated across all programmes within TU Dublin and an evidence-based set of recommendations for a wider scale implementation will be produced.

"Basically the course covers everything to do with digital and online media. I had it as a hobby in sixth year but when I came here I learned so much more."
