CTL Team Teaching and Learning Fellowships 2020 

The 2020 Team Fellowships are a key part of Maynooth University’s ongoing commitment to developing teaching and enhancing the student learning experience. The Fellowships are intended to contribute to enhancement of the student experience more broadly across the University and to build institutional capacity in teaching and learning.

This year’s Fellowship call builds on previous themes and reflects the priorities articulated in the University’s Strategic Plan 2018 – 2022. The theme for the 2020 Team Fellowship call is ‘Inspirational Teaching for Student Success’.
