The Collaborative Knowledge Exchange for Learning Impact – or, simply, Crannóg, for short, is a partnership between NUI Galway, UL, MIC, and DCU, which aims to support the professional development of those colleagues in roles such as Head of School/Department, Dean, etc.

Specifically, the project focuses on aspects of leadership of teaching & learning, and the building of digital capacity/capability. It builds on the work of Ireland’s National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning, and seeks to encourage the sharing of ideas, the dissemination of research and scholarship, and the development of a professional network.

The project has been curating resources on key topics raised by Heads of School and Discipline in the partner institutions.  Navigate to Topics to explore these resources.

The project’s activities have been mapped to the National Professional Development Framework for all Staff who Teach in Higher Education.  To view this mapping and learn more, navigate to Professional Development Framework.
