About the NDLR
The NDLR mission is "to promote and support Higher Education sector staff in the collaboration development and sharing of learning resources and associated teaching practices".
A key impact of the NDLR service is to support greater collaboration in developing and sharing of digital teaching resources and associated teaching experience across all subject disciplines and communities of academics and to promote good practice use and re-use of existing resources. By being empowered by the support of communities of academics, staff from different disciplines can share effort and expertise as they raise the bar collectively for how they support their students learning, embed research in their teaching and potentially embracing partnerships with research and industry, both in Ireland and Internationally.
The aims and objectives of the NDLR service:
To support individual, group and community HE sector staff in the collaboration and sharing of digital learning resources and associated teaching practices across all subject disciplines in all Irish HE Institutions
Provide a repository platform for storage, search and retrieval facilities for shared resources
Provide a Community Portal to showcase and support communication and collaboration across subject areas and institutions
Support coordination of collaboration within and across different subject communities through the SMART CoPs and partner institutions
Promote usage and sharing of digital resources and associated teaching expertise through national programme of training and events
Support open access digital rights management of teaching resources
