    Abstract

    In 2016, Ireland's National Forum for Teaching and Learning launched the National Professional Development Framework (PD Framework) for all staff who teach in Irish Higher Education. With this in mind, Maynooth University's Centre for Teaching and Learning(MU CTL)has recently undertaken a comprehensive review of its accredited professional development programmesin learning and teaching, the Professional Certificate in Teaching and Learning for Tutors and Demonstrators (PCTL) and the Postgraduate Diploma in Higher Education (PGDHE), in order to fully align them with the PD Framework. In the current paper we outline the benchmarking and alignment process undertaken; discuss the role of stakeholder engagement in the process; reflect on lessons learned to date; and detail future plans for the development of a toolkit aimed at supporting institutions or programme teamswho wish to align their accredited teaching and learning programmes with the PD Framework.
