Irish Universities Association (IUA) - The Enhancing Digital Teaching and Learning in Irish Universities project (EDTL)
The Enhancing Digital Teaching and Learning in Irish Universities project is funded through the HEA’s Innovation and Transformation Programme.
The project aims to enhance the digital attributes and educational experiences of Irish university students through enabling the use of digital technologies across the teaching and learning process. The project aims to mainstream digital in teaching and learning activities in Irish Universities, by addressing the professional development of all who teach or support teaching and learning.
The project uses the European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators (DigCompEdu) which aims to provide a general reference frame to guide the professional development of educators https://ec.europa.eu/jrc/en/digcompedu
