The National Seminar Series 2021/22 has been launched by National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

Each of the upcoming seminars includes a topic related to one or more of the four key strategic priorities of the National Forum. 32 seminars have a focus on the professional development of all those who teach, 29 focus on teaching and learning in a digital world, 28 focus on teaching and learning enhancement within and across disciplines, 32 focus on students success 4 have a cross-priority focus. As with last year higher education’s response to COVID-19 influenced the topics of many seminars and these local conversations will, no doubt, continue to be very fruitful in ensuring support for students and staff in the emerging context. This year, subject to public health recommendations, a number of seminars are planned to be run as in-person events, in addition 44 of the seminars are currently scheduled to run online during the coming academic year.

The National Seminar Series gives those working in higher education the opportunity to connect with colleagues and to focus on shared interests in both the research and practice of teaching and learning enhancement. Further, it creates opportunities to hear from national and international experts in different areas of teaching and learning. To date, the National Seminar Series has attracted an attendance of over 14,000 people, including students, staff, senior managers and invited experts. The support of seminars across the sector reflects a core value underpinning the National Forum’s 2019-21 Strategy, that of collaborating, and fostering collaboration, helping to promote shared knowledge, understanding and practice amongst all who are invested in teaching and learning in Irish higher education.
