DELTA Scholarship for Academic/Teaching staff                  

The Erasmus+ DELTA Scholarship is a new opportunity for academic/teaching staff in higher education to enhance their professional development through a training period in another European country.  This initiative is the result of a partnership between the National Forum and the International Section of the Higher Education Authority, building on the success of the existing Erasmus+ mobility programmes.

The Erasmus+ DELTA Scholarship focuses on supporting the professional development of staff in Irish higher education, with a particular focus on the enhancement of teaching and learning, within and between disciplines. Those who decide to avail of this opportunity, to use their mobility period to focus on the enhancement of teaching and learning within their disciplines, can also gain national recognition for this commitment to their discipline, in the form of a National Forum digital badge

DELTA stands for Disciplinary Excellence in Learning, Teaching and Assessment and is a core concept of the work of the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (www.teachingandlearning.ie).
