Developing quality and engaging environments for students and staff

GMIT Teaching Learning

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”  

Benjamin Franklin

 

At GMIT, we aim to create an environment where all students have a chance to flourish, by taking into account students' learning styles and diverse experiences.

The Teaching and Learning Office in GMIT is responsible for a number activities that aid us in reaching that goal. 

This includes the co-ordination of our postgraduate Teaching and Learning Programme and our PASS Leadership Programme.

We work with higher education institutes and education partners in Ireland and internationally on development projects in the areas of:

  • Student centred learning
  • Technology enhanced learning
  • Online learning
  • Assessment tools
  • Teaching strategies
  • Mentoring
  • Recognition of prior learning
  • Leadership in teaching and learning

We also work with the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, the Educational Developers Network Ireland and the Learning Innovation Network to develop educational resources and advocate for change in teaching and learning in Ireland.
