DkIT Students Present Innovative Student Resources

Created at National Digital Education Conference

Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT) are proud to report that a group of their students who included Leon Hoban from the Department of Humanities, Ben McKeever from the Department of Visual and Human Centred Computing and Kelley O’Hanlon from the Department of Management and Financial Studies recently presented to the Digital Education 23 Conference which was held in South Eastern Technological University (SETU) in Waterford. Yet again DkIT students are at the forefront of making national change to make education more accessible for all and were delighted to get this opportunity to present their groundbreaking and innovative resources on a national level.

The Digital Education Conference in SETU brought together educators, researchers and industry professionals with the aim to enable the sharing and discovery of innovative uses of technology in an ever-changing teaching and learning environment.

This conference facilitated dialogue and debate around the education landscape as well as investigating the navigation through the emergent developments of ChatGPT whilst illuminating the transformative digital opportunities of education in our society.

The conference took place over two days and key topics covered included digital education, teaching and learning online, inclusive digital education, expected trends & dialogue on generative artificial intelligence whilst examining the challenges & potential long-term implications of emerging technology for education, research & industry.

The DkIT student’s presentation investigated 'Building a community of trust: A student-led response to academic integrity challenges'. This drew on their work with the Centre of Education Learning and Teaching (CELT) as student interns.  This project was part of a National Forum of Strategic Alignment of Teaching and Learning Enhancement (SATLE) funded project under the title ‘Assessment for All’.  With fellow students Conor Garvey, Amrita Giri, Samir Saba, Abby Murphy, Patrick Orjieh, Dillion Reilly and Lenka Vrancikova, they developed a range of resources to promote academic integrity.

The resources that were created by the DkIT students has had a real impact and has been incorporated into a guide provided to all first years in DkIT. The DkIT students also created some fantastic videos, available on the SLDC section of the Moodle Student Support Hub, under the ‘Academic Integrity’ tile.  One of these videos has been incorporated into the Artificial Intelligence unit of the N-TUTORR Academic Integrity Digital badge.  This new resource is available to students across the entire technological higher education sector and over 600 DkIT students have completed it so far!
