Abstract

This report from the field discusses a new approach taken to the co-evolution of teaching excellence and evidence-based practice in the context of Learning Development in a Technological University in Ireland. It explores supporting faculty in their exploration of pedagogic inquiry and teaching excellence and how this can co-evolve to generate synergies in academic productivity (the core activity sets of the faculty). A key part of this Learning Development work is understanding how integrating inquiry and teaching can drive excellence and pedagogic innovation in practice.
