Our vision is one where research and teaching go hand in hand; where students and academics work in inclusive research, teaching and learning partnerships; where opportunities are created for all students to engage in and be challenged by appropriate scholarly activity from their first year of undergraduate studies; where students enjoy the highest possible quality learning experience.
Such a vision calls for renewed efforts to develop research-based teaching and learning practices, to generate knowledge which is constructed and negotiated in partnership. It calls for more inclusive relationships between students and staff, and the pursuit of academic professionalism by both students and academics. Through the promotion of a vision of higher education where all teachers and learners are scholars, life long learners and life long inquirers, the National Academy will contribute to making Ireland an attractive place for students to study and for academics to work.
