Educational Developers in Ireland Network

The Educational Developers in Ireland Network is a grouping of educational developers/teaching and learning experts from Irish institutes of higher education.

The mission of EDIN is to support, enhance and influence the field of academic development and practice. We achieve this by informing policy and practice in teaching and learning in Higher Education, and by collaborating in research and dissemination of resources. EDIN values creative, critical, collaborative and professional approaches in supporting teaching and learning. You can read the EDIN Constitution to learn more about our mission and structure.

EDIN members share experience and expertise in teaching and learning within Irish HE institutions. We work together to explore and develop practice in relation to accredited teaching and learning programmes, researching academic practice, and writing for publication. In what is relatively a new field, the opportunity to share experiences with counterparts has created a forum for people to meet and more importantly to learn from each other.

EDIN runs development events and seminars during the academic year around Ireland, and produce a regular email newsletter for members. Please check this website for news and events, or follow us on Twitter @EDIN_Irl

EDIN Members come from across the third level sector – universities, institutes of technology, private colleges and other organisations. Please use this link if you are interested in joining EDIN.
