Aurion to deliver e-learning to Irish Universities
Online learning company Aurion Learning has been awarded a contract to develop an equality and diversity e-learning programme for the Irish Universities Association (IUA) Equality Network, a sub group of the Irish Universities Association.
Aurion Learning will be working in partnership with the IUA Equality Network to design and build the 'Living Equality and Diversity' (LEAD) online learning programme.
Marie Connolly, learning, development and equal opportunities manager at the University of Limerick and project leader said: "Ireland is becoming an increasingly diverse country. In recent years widening participation from all members of the community has been a priority for Irish universities both individually and collectively.
"This equality and diversity e-learning programme is part of a wider blended approach to generating mainstream staff engagement with diversity issues. In particular, it will enable staff to consider and reflect on the part they play in building an inclusive culture across the university sector."
The IUA Equality Network, with membership from Ireland’s seven universities, was established to work collaboratively to share best practice, develop institutional competence, develop intervarsity projects and co-operation, promote an inclusive university environment and prevent discrimination on all equality grounds contemplated in legalisation.
Dr. Maureen Murphy, managing director of Aurion Learning said: "We’re delighted to be working with the IUA Equality Network to develop this Living Equality and Diversity (LEAD) e-learning programme.
"It will include over two and a half hours of online learning, spread over five modules, allowing participants to build up their knowledge over time. It will feature best practice and engaging learning content to keep learners interested and engaged."
