MTU were delighted to be allocated funding as part of the Strategic Alignment of Teaching and Learning Enhancement (SATLE) 2020 initiative by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (NFETLHE), in partnership with the Higher Education Authority (HEA). The Teaching and Learning Unit launched the SATLE Funding 2020 Call in February 2021.
Building on our existing programmes supporting and funding Teaching, Learning, Assessment and Student Engagement (TLASE) enhancement projects, successful outcomes from SATLE 2019 and guidance from the National Forum, MTU decided to use its allocation (€343,000) across two strands of activity:
- RAFT – Reimagining Assessment and Feedback Together - a project to take forward a strategic body of work to enhance Assessment and Feedback at MTU. It involved working with academic staff, through a bespoke professional development programme, to develop assessment and feedback interventions at a programme and module level. These interventions were developed in collaboration (together) with students.
- Transforming Teaching and Learning for Student Success Projects – projects funded following the open call to all MTU staff to propose teaching, learning, assessment and student engagement (TLASE) projects that aligned to MTU’s strategic priorities and the National Forum’s focus on student success. Projects were conceived by staff across MTU Departments and Functions to address challenges, needs and opportunities that would transform the teaching and learning experience.
