MoodleMunch: A Lunchtime Webinar Series Showcasing Digital Teaching and Learning Practice

The Teaching Enhancement Unit (TEU), part of the National Institute for Digital Learning (NIDL) at DCU, is delighted to lead a collaborative initiative to share innovations and stories of good practice around Moodle.

‘MoodleMunch’ is a lunchtime webinar series commencing 21st April 2020, in which members of the Irish and UK Moodle community can showcase digital learning and teaching practice, and share knowledge and innovations from their own institutions. It’s an opportunity to learn from one another, get a flavour of Moodle activity taking place across these islands, chew the fat, digest interesting developments and munch on ideas! And the great thing is that you can even participate in each session whilst munching on a sandwich. 


In keeping with Moodle’s mission to empower educators, each webinar will explore Moodle innovations and stories that support the development of educators’ competencies on the European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators (DigCompEdu). These stories will also relate to the broad categories of findings of the Irish National Digital Experience (INDEx) survey of 2019.

Each webinar will comprise two short presentations, related to a competence on the DigCompEdu framework. After each presentation there will be an opportunity for Q&A and rich discussion about the innovations showcased.

A full schedule of webinars and links to register attendance are available in this documentWebinars will take place on:

    • Tuesday 21 April, 13:00-14:00
    • Tuesday 12 May, 13:00-14:00
    • Tuesday 2 June, 13:00-14:00
    • Tuesday 23 June, 13:00-14:00

Presenters from DCU, Maynooth University, Hibernia College, Dublin Business School and Marino Institute of Education will dish up meaty stories that we can all tuck into! The initiative is supported by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, and participation in the webinar series is a form of professional learning categorised as “Structured, non-accredited (non-formal)” as per the National Forum Professional Development Framework.
