The NDLR Fest: Annual Showcase for Digital Learning Resources is taking place on Wednesday the 23rd March, from 10am – 5pm at The Science Gallery, Trinity College Dublin
The format of the event has been designed to ensure every NDLR partner Institution and as many subject areas as possible are represented. This is an opportunity to highlight and celebrate the learning resources and associated activities and initiatives that have been taking place in your institution over the past 12 months supported by the NDLR service. Your support and assistance with this event is crucial to its success and in ensuring the Showcase is attended by a large proportion of the Irish academic community.
Aim, Scope & Format (click here to view 2010 NDLR Fest presentations!)
The main aim of this event is to celebrate local champions and showcase the wide array of learning resources (LRs) and associated T & L activities that have been generated across all subject disciplines in the Irish HE sector. This will be a national forum event for staff of Irish HE Institutions to come together, get an overview of the type and range of digital learning resources available through the NDLR community and repository and an opportunity to meet their colleagues at the showcase exhibition to see what other people are doing.
To assist the NDLR Fest visitor on the day, the exhibition area will display poster boards of the resources based on the following 6 subject areas;
1. Arts Humanities and Social Sciences
3. Health Sciences
4. Science and Engineering
5. Business and Law
6. Inter-disciplinary subjects
The categorisation of resources will make it easier for the NDLR Fest visitor to find resources that would be of interest and relevance to them. Each partner Institute will also display posters of local resources developed within their Institute, showing all the activity that has taken place in 2010. In addition to the NDLR Fest, the same posters could be reused for events such as Edtech 2011 and local or national teaching and learning days.
A key impact of the NDLR service is to support greater collaboration in developing and sharing of digital teaching resources and associated teaching experience across all subject disciplines and communities of academics and to promote good practice use and re-use of existing resources. By being empowered by the support of communities of academics, staff from different disciplines can share effort and expertise as they raise the bar collectively for how they support their students learning, embed research in their teaching and potentially embracing partnerships with research and industry, both in Ireland and Internationally.
