As part of its contribution to the Learning Innovation Network (LIN)accredited professional development (APD) programme, LimerickInstitute of Technology (LIT) was lead partner in the development ofa 10-ECTS Level 9 award in technology-enhanced learning (TEL),focused particularly on information and communications technologies (ICT). Following the LIN APD model, successfulcompletion of the award leads to a Special Purpose Certificate inTechnology-enhanced Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.ICTs are ubiquitous in contemporary society, and it is natural thateducators in third-level institutions should seek to harness thepower of these technologies to support student learning. The internet is of particular interest because of the way that it facilitatescommunication and makes vast information resources and online tools readily available at the click of a mouse. Benefits for learnersinclude flexibility about where and when they access learningmaterials. For distance learners, the web allows a level of interactivity and immediacy that is not possible with traditional distance-education methods. Web resources can also be used toenrich classroom learning by adding vibrancy and vividness toclassroom topics.
