TU4Dublin First Year Experience

On May 12th & 13th 2015 - Consolidate our TU4Dublin 1st Year Curriculum Redesign

Almost 100 staff and students from ITB, IT Tallaght and DIT contributed to the immersive workshop facilitated by Ewan McIntosh, CEO of NoTosh, on 12th and 13th May 2015 developing design thinking ideas from a similar session last year in the creation of a new first year experience that will characterise our Technological University learner transition into higher education.

40 projects were identified under the eight themes: Induction/early Orientation, First 5,6 or 7 Weeks, Peer Mentoring, Assessment and Feedback, Graduate Attributes, Students/autonomous Self-directed Learners, Learning Spaces – virtual and physical and Alternative Curriculum Models.

These will be supported under the auspices of the TU4D Reimagining the Curriculum strand.
