The vision for the 2011-14 Teaching, Learning and Assessment strategy is ‘to improve continuously the learning experience so that all DIT students acquire core skills and develop as independent learners.’ It is recognised that within this strategy we are engaging with an increasingly diverse and complex body of learners, each individual learner has their own background experience, motivation, expectations and learning preferences and these should be taken into account when planning and designing Modules and Programmes. Drivers within both the external and internal environment are also changing. As a result, we have decided to design the new DIT LTA Strategy as dynamic and flexible document that will evolve in response to the changing context in which it is situated.
TLA strategy 2011-14
The 2011-4 TLA strategy framework was first approved through Academic Council in June 2010. The framework is structured around 6 Strategic Priorities: 1.Curriculum, 2.Teaching excellence, 3.Development of key skills and competences, 4.Diversity of learning opportunities, 5.External and internal engagement and 6. Evaluation and review. Since then, an extensive consultation process has been undertaken to ensure full staff engagement in the roll out and implementation of the Strategy. College based forums have been organised to agree local priority areas of focus along with the creation of realistic and practical indicators for each academic year. It is intended to continue to facilitate these forums throughout 2012. These will be advertised through the LTTC Workshop pages.
The current version of the strategy (June 2011) is summarised below as a ‘Strategy on a page’ or a ‘Luas map’.
