The National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education was established in 2012. The role of the National Forum is to enhance the teaching and learning for all students in higher education. Engaging with leaders, managers, teachers and students, the National Forum mobilises expertise and inputs from across the entire sector to extend and shape best practice in all institutes of higher education in Ireland.
