Engaged Learning

Engaged Learning


OD.pngDr. Owen Doody

Our overall goal is to provide students with a student-centred, relevant, responsive and innovative learning experience. A key purpose of this strategy is to build on UL’s dynamically delivered undergraduate and postgraduate curricula, which are designed to realise the university’s vision of producing graduates who are ‘knowledgeable, proactive, creative, responsible, collaborative and articulate’. We will achieve this by continuing to engage with our partners in healthcare and through our commitment to developing structures to maximise our students’ learning as they prepare to fulfil the role of a registered nurse or midwife. We welcome the opportunity to develop a broader international focus, which will bring benefits to the learning experience of our students.

Our goal with respect to engaged learning is to provide students with a student-centred, relevant, responsive and innovative learning experience through:

  • Building a culture of support and respect for students.
  • The design and implement dynamically delivered curricula to meet the educational healthcare needs of the region.
  • Valuing and responding to the student voice.
  • Broadening our connection and engagement with community and increase our contribution to campus and community health and wellbeing.
  • Actively engaging and invest in creative advanced learning technologies.
  • Increase internationalisation within the department.
  • Support equality and reprentation through Athena SWAN principles - click on link here

Welcome to the student section of the Department of Nursing and Midwifery Engaged Learning. The Department values students and their learning is of paramount importance. Through fostering a learning and engagement the Department and its staff facilitate each student to achieve their full potential. The relationship between students and staff is a particular strength of the Department and this is supported through staff and students working together in classes, tutorials and clinical skills labs.
