Since its foundation in 2005, CCT College Dublin has had a strong focus on digital innovation to enhance the teaching and learning experience. In February of 2019, prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning's Irish National Digital Experience INDEx Survey indicated that 78.3% of students positively rated digital teaching and learning approaches at CCT (31.9% excellent and 3.4% best imaginable). With the emergency online pivot in March 2020 and QQI’s approval of CCT’s blended learning extension of scope application, CCT has subsequently upgraded all of its classrooms for hybrid delivery and promoted the Community of Inquiry pedagogical approach (Garrison, Anderson and Archer, 1999) for the virtual classroom. Digital transformation at CCT is informed by sectoral research and a partnership approach engaging all stakeholders. This poster highlights recent developments pertaining to digital transformation involving faculty in the context of programme delivery. Scores for digital infrastructure and support in the 2022 CCT Annual Student Engagement Survey were extremely high with 90% of respondents positively rating the virtual classroom at CCT (good, very good or excellent). 88% of respondents also positively rated the navigation and layout of CCT Moodle's instance as well as the software and platforms used to support the delivery of programmes.

A small team at CCT College Dublin was given a very big goal. A new IR and faculty profiling tool from Digital Commons was provided to enable strategic developments pertaining to institutional scholarly activity. In the span of little more than a year – and in the midst of COVID - Team CCT has made quick strides in using their IR to underpin and showcase teaching and learning activities, student achievement, quality and enhancement projects, research activity (including student research), and sectoral engagement. Although in the relatively early stages of development, the IR is now successfully embedded across many institutional activities with further plans in the pipeline which will be explored in this webinar.
During this one hour program we’ll cover the following topics:
1. Library Services and the IR Team at CCT College
2. Tailoring IR Design To Your Context
3. Strategic Application of the IR at CCT
4. Student Work, A Catalyst for IR Engagement
Cultivating Academic Self-Efficacy Through Supportive Social And Self Regulated Learning Strategies for Students in Higher Education
This research set out to enhance engagement in computer programming, a known difficult subject area for 1st year BSc in IT students. Programming lecturing staff had strong reservations about introducing group work in their classes, claiming group work was a counter-productive learning approach. The study was framed on a mixed methods action research approach, and a number of interventions, centred on reflective learning and social learning, were introduced. The findings indicated a strong preference by students to work in groups when tackling computer programming problems, but no strong evidence was found that reflective or social learning activities enhance programming skill level. A key contribution to practice was the introduction of a student mentoring academy within the institution, with programming as a central theme.
