A distinguishing feature of DCU Connected is our commitment to working with other agencies, institutions and organisations around the globe to jointly develop world-class educational solutions for local problems. In this respect, there is a deeper purpose underpinning DCU Connected as our investment in online education aligns with our mission of transforming lives and societies. At DCU promoting access to higher education, wherever you are, and developing human capital is part of who we are and what we do.
We understand the role we can play through DCU Connected in helping to build the capacity and capability of other institutions, countries and regions in designing their own high quality online and blended programmes in areas of need that make a real difference. Although we are proud of the unique Irish perspective infused throughout many of our programmes, we are committed to working with strategic partners to tailor courses and qualifications to address local requirements.
More specifically, we can offer our considerable experience in the National Institute for Digital Learning to assist other institutions and organisations in realising the potential of new transformative models of teaching and learning in their own contexts. The case studies below provide brief examples of how DCU is making an impact in a number of countries and regions on a wider international stage.
We also welcome opportunities to work with other agencies, institutions and organisations from around the world to customise the design and delivery of our degree programmes and short course offerings (either fully or partially online) to support the needs of particular groups from specific work settings and/or geographical locations.
