The Department of Adult & Community Education at Maynooth University in Ireland is one of six partners in the DIMA project, developing e-learning material and a toolkit for adult learning policy makers.

Four hundred Irish adult learning and policy making practioners were invited to participate in the DIMA pilot blended online learning training course during May 2017. Almost one in four responded positively and thirty-nine (39) actually participated and provided feedback by the 30th June 2017. The 39 participants comprised adult learning practitioners, Education and Training Board (ETB) policy makers, educational technologists and Higher Education (HEI) academics.

Given the time of year (end of academic year), geographic spread and workload the high level of interest in this pilot training was evident. A user- led process was designed to facilitate their participation with the technical support of CARDET, Cyprus.

Feedback was collected through face-to-face (14 participants) and online (9 participants) workshops on Tuesday 20th and Tuesday 27th June 2017. Feedback details are available in the National Implementation Report, Ireland, available from the DIMA website.
