Last Friday the first Technological University for Dublin ( TU4Dublin ) collaborative curriculum initiatives were launched by Professor Rhona Sharpe, Oxford Brookes University UK under the theme of Re-imagining our Curriculum.

 

 

The event, which was opened by Dr. Mary Meaney, President of ITB and chaired by Professor Brian O'Neill, recognised the importance of student transition into higher education and the first year experience. In total twenty prototype projects and seven cross-institutional programmes received funding.

 

 

TU4D First Year Experience Prototype Projects - Twenty prototype projects have been funded to develop new strategies that will underpin the foundation of our unique TU4D first year curriculum.

TU4D Programmes for the Future - Seven cross-institutional programme teams have been funded to create flagship courses that align with the TU4Dublin curriculum model and demonstrate an innovative, collaborative approach to curriculum design.

For further details on the new programmes and projects, please visit DIT's Learning, Teaching and Technology Centre website .

 

 

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all those involved in this first collaborative curriculum initiative event and look forward to more such collaborative events in the future.

What our students say...

"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."
