Research and Scholarship

The scholarship of teaching and learning has emerged as an established field in Ireland and internationally in recent decades, while research into the use of new technologies to enhance learning and teaching has grown exponentially. The LTTC contributes to these fields of research and is currently building pedagogic research capacity. We believe strongly in academic research being able to thrive and for us, capacity building is about enabling those with whom we work to progress so that they are able to sustain and develop their academic field, both now and in the future. The nature of this is dependent upon the range of learning opportunities, engagement with research communities and interpersonal support that we provide to enhance the professional development of research staff in higher education.
