€12.5 million Higher Education Transformation Project Launched
Professor Jacqueline McCormack, Higher Education Project Lead says, “Higher Education 4.0 will help to transform how learners access education; how we, as educators, develop and deliver course material to best suit a diverse range of learners, and how we engage with industry to deliver skills for today’s rapidly changing work environment.”
Speaking at the launch Dr Orla Flynn, President of Atlantic Technological University, says “This project showcases what can be achieved through the combination of innovation and a genuine ambition of making third level education an accessible place for all types of learners. By engaging with a wider range of learners and employers and providing a more enriched educational experience we will ensure that our students graduate equipped with 21st century employability skills.”
The project is funded by the Human Capital Initiative under Pillar 3: Innovation and Agility.
