"The collaborative learning environment, emphasis on critical engagement, and reflective practice equipped me in my career as a lecturer in Higher Education.  I experienced a learning environment that was engaging and innovative, with lecturers that were both passionate and rigorous. Doing the Masters in Teaching and Learning at WIT informed my practice, leading me to adopt new approaches to the courses I teach, while also providing me with the space to reflect on the type of lecturer I wished to be."

Rebecca Purcell, PhD, Lecturer in Business, Mary Immaculate College

"The academic re-awakening I experienced, through interactions with course lecturers and fellow participants was invigorating and I have a great sense of my study having had a very strong impact on my current practice. Embracing the challenges the Masters programme in WIT provided, empowered me to re-engage with my work on a more informed level of professionalism and facilitated a space where I learned a great deal about myself. This new connectivity, on both a personal and professional level, has brought with it an enriched sense of authenticity and confidence."

Glenn Lynch, Youth and Community Worker, Ballybeg CDP

"Participating in the Masters in Teaching and Learning in WIT, provided me with many opportunities to explore different teaching methodologies, reflect and then apply them to my own practice as a lecturer. It also allowed me to network, share ideas, collaborate and interact with like-minded people where open discussion with my class mates added to the fun of learning. Since completing the Masters, it has helped me secure a promotion, enhanced my confidence in my own ability and has added credibility to my teaching practice."

Róisin Shanahan, Senior HR Business Partner, WIT

Aidan Duane

"The Master of Education in Teaching and Learning Education is an excellent programme. I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the programme. The opportunity to interact with colleagues from across the educational sector was enlightening, and it really transformed my teaching, learning and assessment strategies and capabilities. The lectures and tutorials were highly informative, engaging, challenging, motivating and of a very high quality. The theoretical frameworks discussed are very transferable to our teaching and learning environments and ultimately benefit our own students. The support, feedback, and encouragement from all the staff working on the programme was immense. Now that I have completed the programme, I am really going to miss the camaraderie with the other participants on the programme, as their thoughtful, friendly, supportive, and empathetic engagement in discussions and group activities, made this journey hugely memorable and enjoyable."

Keith Byrne

The Masters of Education in WIT has been one of the best investments of my time & CPD development that I have ever undertaken. The MEd provided an enhancement to my practical knowledge, by imparting a wealth of knowledge & skills, in new standards of excellence & emergent teaching methodologies. The lecturers were fantastic, expertly knowledgeable & always approachable. The MEd afforded me the opportunity to research & enhance my skills with technology in education a very poignant topic in today's educational landscape. I would highly recommend the MEd in WIT to any teaching professional looking to enhance their career progression & upskill in a multitude of teaching skills.
