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.

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.
