FÉILTE 2016 took place on Saturday, 1 October in the RDS, Dublin.

FÉILTE, the Festival of Education in Learning and Teaching Excellence, is a celebration of teaching which showcases the work of teachers who are leading innovative learning projects.


Now in its fourth year, the day provided a platform for teachers to share their stories of innovation with each other and the public.

FÉILTE 2016 featured a mix of over 50 showcases and workshops spanning projects from across the education sector, demonstrating the innovation happening in teaching and learning in schools across the country. The opening address was delivered by former teacher and current Ireland rugby coach, Joe Schmidt with panel discussions on the day chaired by broadcaster Keelin Shanley.
