The Dublin Regional Higher Education Alliance (DRHEA) was established under the HEA Strategic Innovation Fund (SIF2) to promote collaboration in the enhancement of education in the Dublin Region. The member institutions are: DCU, DIT, IADT, ITT Dublin, ITB, NUIM, TCD and UCD. The (DRHEA) introduced Teaching Fellowships in April 2012.
These Fellowships are designed to promote academic engagement and collaboration across the member institutions of the DRHEA through the appointment of Fellows to work collectively on a single strategic teaching and learning enhancement theme in the Dublin Region.
Following a proposal and interview process, Dr Yseult Freeney from DCUBS was awarded one of these fellowships and will now work on a strategic group project on the theme of Enhancing the First Year Learning Experience.
