Launch of 'Partners in Innovation Fellowships' for DkIT Staff and Students13 January 2023
Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT) are delighted to take part in the NTUTORR National Project which is an innovative collaboration across the Technological Higher Education sector to transform the student experience. The aim of this sector-wide scheme is to empower change through student-staff partnerships.
This fellowship programme is a wonderful opportunity for students and staff to collaborate on projects that improve the student experience within their own institutions. These projects might be focused on a specific module, programme or discipline or might be campus or institute-wide. Each project must address at least one of the themes presented below and should result in a positive change that can be sustained. Projects will address the following themes:
- Digital Transformation in Teaching & Learning
- Education for Sustainability
- Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
- Universal Design for Learning
- Academic Integrity and Assessment
All successful project fund recipients of the NTUTORR Partners in Innovation Fellowship Programme will be awarded a NTUTORR project engagement Certificate and a Digital Badge recognising their project achievements at the Fellowship Celebration and Showcase Event planned for April 2024.
There is up to €5,000 available to support each project and applications from teams of students and staff or individual students are welcome. All projects will involve student-staff partnership and successful individual student applications will be matched with staff partners.
The closing date for applications is January 30th 2023.
Free Information Webinar — 18th January 2023, 1 to 2pm
This webinar will explore the fellowship themes with a panel of experts and possible ideas to consider for student and staff partnership projects. It is also an opportunity to ask any questions in relation to an application you plan to submit. Book a place on the Fellowship Programme Masterclass on January 18th 1-2pm
