Tempus ALIGN WP1 Dublin Training is Done!

From the 8th of December to the 12th of December, IADT hosted 55 Tempus ALIGN participants from Armenia, Russia and Ukraina for a week of ALIGN WP (work package) 1 capacity building training. Thanks to Dr. Tara Ryan for her organisation of the WP1 Dublin training and the cultural events. Thanks also to our European experts Andre, Zbigniew, Inna, Durdica, Sergei and Almantas, Special thanks from me to IADT's Cliona Flood, Laura Venables, Therese Moylan, Marion Palmer, Kay Doyle and Mary Anne O Carroll, as well as to my 3rd Year students Caoimhe, Fiona, Fionn, Glen, and Sophie. Thanks also to our expert IADT guide David Doyle and to RCSI's Martina Crehan, QQI's Bryan Maguire and Laura Harmon (President USI), Kevin Donoghue and Conor from USI!

We thoroughly enjoyed the teaching and learning discussions, and especially the debates around learning outcomes, student assessment and the infamous Driving Test exercise!

We hope the Dublin training will benefit all of the ALIGN HEIs, agencies and stakeholders! WP1 (capacity building) is officially done, though we envisage a continuation of capacity building training for the duration of the ALIGN project.

Onwards to 2015 and to the rest of the ALIGN work packages!
