My pedagogical approach is informed by Kolb’s (1984) cycle of active learning, reflection, theorizing, and experimentation, and values of equalit
IRC PhD Scholarship y and inclusiveness.  I aim to promote intellectual curiosity and prioritise integrating contemporary research into teaching and giving opportunity to critically assess the relationship between politics as theory and practice.  I make creative use of external learning opportunities,  invite guest speakers, make active use of VLE ‘moodle’   and offer different styles of group work and utilise digital learning devices.  I was awarded the 2015 Political Science Association of Ireland Teaching and Learning Award and nominated by my department to participate within the Maynooth University  process for the national Teaching Expert Award.
