The Department of Adult and Community Education is delighted to congratulate Lilian Nwanze, winner of the USI-IRC Why Research Matters 2021 video competition.
Lilian was judged the overall winner by Jim Carroll, editor of RTÉ Brainstorm. Lilian’s video, ‘The Invisible Burden: The Impact of Racism on Black Students in Irish Further Education,’ explains her doctoral project at the Department of Adult and Community Education, Maynooth University. The video weaves together Lilian’s formative early experiences of teaching practice with the personal stories of her students to argue for a more cultural inclusive and racially appropriate curriculum and pedagogy in Irish Further Education.

Now in its second year, Why Research Matters is a joint campaign by the Union of Students Ireland and the Irish Research Council that invites postgraduate students to submit a video explaining their research and why it matters. Video entries are judged on the communication of the research project, how they engage the viewer, and in the originality and creativity of their presentation.
