Teaching Enhancement Cycle


TEC diagramThe DCU Teaching Enhancement Cycle (TEC) is a self-directed, cyclical process, supported by the Learning Innovation Unit (LIU), whereby DCU staff can gather feedback on their own teaching practice in order to self evaluate and move to positive, actionable change through self reflective exercises, gathering of evidence and engaging with teaching theory. The main objectives of the process are to:

  • Assist academic staff in their professional development.
  • Enhance the quality of teaching and student learning at DCU.
  • Raise the profile of teaching activity.
  • Inform requirements for staff development in teaching and learning.
  • Provide evidence of the quality of teaching and of steps taken to improve the quality of teaching.
