In May, almost 40 DCU and linked College staff met to hear about the work of the new Digital Learning Research Network. The Research Network is an important part of the NIDL’s strategic plan and following a distributed model of leadership it aims to harness and develop within DCU, and beyond, some of the expertise that already exists in the area of digital learning. A range of forthcoming initiatives was described and after the meeting a small steering group was formed to guide future initiatives.
The Research Network will have valuable linkages with similar centres around the world and members of an International Advisory Board will be announced shortly. Already Professor Grainne Conole has been formally appointed as an Adjunct Professor to the NIDL.
