My Biography

I am a lecturer in Management in the Waterford Institute of Technology and for the last twenty years have lectured on a wide variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. My current primary teaching interests are in the areas of Business Ethics, Professional and Personal Development and the emerging fields of Sustainability and Social entrepreneurship. In the past I have lectured on courses such as, Corporate Strategy, Organisational behaviour and Communications.  I have an abiding interest in the development and writing of courses tailored to meet the needs of students from varying fields and backgrounds. I also supervise research students in postgraduate courses on taught business programmes.

My educational background includes a Bachelor of Business Studies (Hons) from Waterford Institute of Technology and a Masters of Business Studies in Management and Organisation Structures from The Smurfit School of Business, University College Dublin.

Research Role

I am a long serving member of the Research Ethics committee which has allowed me to contribute to the ongoing research within the college in all disciplines.

My Professional Experience

Prior to my current role at WIT, I worked in a variety of roles within ESB, Waterford City Council and the Department of Social Welfare. These positions gave me insight into planning, structures and people management within public service environments and the contrast with private enterprise.

Teaching Philsophy

I believe that student needs and levels are central to the teaching process and that it is essential to constantly innovate with fresh approaches and teaching methodologies. Based on the philosophy that’ we cannot teach people anything we can only help them to discover it within themselves’ Galileo, I would facilitate students in experiential learning and the integration of theory with practice. To this end I would have adapted my teaching style to incorporate problem based learning and blended learning approaches. I have run workshops and role-plays that give insight into practical techniques for areas such as time management, goal setting and mock interviews for both undergraduates, post graduates and business owners.

On a broader level I have been a committee member who has contributed to a new induction process for first years, the first year engagement committee and an integration project which sees students being assessed across all their modules in holistic manner.
