Sahlberg Review recommends TCD-MIE Centre of Excellence in ITE

A report for the Higher Education Authority by leading international educator Professor Pasi Sahlberg has recommended the establishment of a Centre of Excellence in Initial Teacher Education comprising Trinity College Dublin and the Marino Institute of Education. Welcoming the recommendation, Professor Damian Murchan, Head of Trinity's School of Education commented that establishment of the centre reflects and endorses the long-standing productive strategic links between the two institutions based on a partnership over 4 decades coupled with a clear collaborative vision for the future. He added that recognition of this cluster by the HEA strengthens the resolve of staff in both institutions to provide high-quality research-led learning opportunities for students in ITE and CPD contexts.
