Open-Access Professional Development Courses

The National Forum has co-ordinated a suite of open-access professional development programmes offered as non-accredited professional development opportunities for all who teach in Irish higher education. Gain recognition for the development of particular skills and knowledge sets relevant to your teaching and learning practice. These open-access programmes support staff mobility and transfer across the Irish higher education sector through the National Forum’s digital badge system.
