Student Led Learning (SLL)

Student Led Learning SLL at GMIT

Student Led Learning (SLL) is a national special interest group (2014-2018) supported by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching.

It was founded by Dr. Carina Ginty (GMIT) and Ms. Nuala Harding (AIT) in 2014. It was focused on developing free nationally available educational resources that support retention, student engagement and the transition to Higher Education.

The SLL members included representatives from Universities, Institutes of Technology,  HECA, FE Colleges, IGC, Ahead and the USI working in teaching and learning, and student development.
