The Irish Learning Technology Assocation is delighed to convey the following welcome message from Mary McAleese, Chair of the Modernisation of Higher Education High Level Group at the European Commission:
This very timely conference on Technology Enhanced Learning for a New Horizon chimes strongly with the current work of the EU High Level Group on the Modernisation of Higher Education and also the Irish National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.
Embracing the potential of new technologies and pedagogies is essential for the further modernisation and quality enhancement of higher education provision across Europe.
We need leadership at a national and institutional level to support these developments and we need to ensure all teachers are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to ensure this potential is fully realised.
This conference provides an ideal opportunity to exchange good practice and further advance the dialogue nationally on these exciting new opportunities.
