  • Recognise, reward and celebrate those who have demonstrated a deep commitment to the enhancement of teaching and learning.
  • Provide an opportunity for Fellows to share their knowledge and to expand their expertise;
  • Provide a robust evidence base for future teaching and learning enhancement decision-making across the sector.

Speaking about the Teaching and Learning Research Fellowship, Dr Barry Ryan, said: "It is an honour to be shortlisted for the inaugural Irish National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning Research Fellowships. These Fellowships recognise sustained commitment to teaching and learning practice and scholarship and will shape and inform the direction of Higher Education in Ireland.

Over the next two weeks, the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education will profile each nominee on their website with final fellowship winners due to be announced later this summer.
