More about teaching, and ideally take a short course or qualification

Through the LTTC, DIT provides a range of opportunities for members of staff to gain accredited qualifications in their teaching. Short courses (5 or 10 ECTS modules) are provided through the LTTC's Continuing Professional Development programme. The Postgraduate Diploma in Third Level Learning and Teaching (60 ECTS) offers a broader and deeper engagement with teaching and learning, with assessment by portfolio. The MA in Higher Education includes taught components in year one, addressing areas such as learning theory, higher education policy and academic writing and publishing. Participants then undertake independent research in their second year for their theses. The MSc in Applied eLearning addresses the theory and practice of eLearning design. Participants design and implement an e-learning resource and research its effectiveness, while also reflecting on and documenting their own professional development through an e-portfolio. Please visit the LTTC Programmes page for full details of these courses.
