Insights from DIT Staff


This Insights with... series of case studies has been put together to celebrate the innovative learning and teaching activities DIT staff are engaged in with their students, and to inspire all who read them.

Each month during the academic year, a new case study will be added to the list and will be featured on the LTTC website. Each case study will explore the nature of the innovation, how it is implemented, and the benefits and drawbacks of the approach. It will provide also some advice for anyone looking to implement this same approach with their own students.

If you have a teaching experience you would like to share as part of this series, then please contact Frances Boylan or Dolores McManus.
