  • Effectively supervise numerous final year project students on the Sport and Exercise Sciences BSc.
  • Engaged with the UL module evaluation programme (Centre for Teaching and Learning) for all modules I coordinate and achieve above average ratings in all elements
  • Implementation of novel teaching methodologies (ICT & others) to all years with special focus on 1st year students
  • Actively seek research funding based around teaching methodologies and improvement of same
  • Engagement with the UL Centre for Teaching & learning to advance my skill base as an educator
  • Member of the development team for the new MSc Human/Sports Performance – Start Jan 2012

  • International Student Coordinator – PESS Department (UL), September 2002 – September 2006

Assistant Dean – Academic Affairs, Education & Health Sciences, University of Limerick, Limerick (2010 - 2016)

  • As an effective member of the Faculty Management Team, I provide strong academic leadership and overall management direction for the Faculty of Education & Health Sciences within the context of the University and Faculty strategic plans. I take lead responsibility for the development and successful delivery of cross-faculty initiatives.
  • I have successfully assisted the Executive Dean of EHS in the strategic management of the faculty by providing leadership in the development and effective implementation of policies, procedures, practices and targets in relation to academic affairs and by assuming appropriate cross-faculty management responsibilities.
  • I have successfully facilitated and supported programme delivery within EHS within guidelines established by statutory bodies (i.e. Governing Authority and Academic Council) and other bodies with delegated authority, such as Executive Committee, Management Council and other executive decision-making bodies within the University.
  • I am an active contributor to University committees and undertake representative roles on behalf of the Faculty within and outside the University. I also deputise, as required, for the Executive Dean
  • During my tenure as Assistant Dean – Academic Affairs (EHS) I take a strong interest in Faculty policies in an attempt to promote a level of fairness and transparency within EHS and to align the Faculty with the aims and objectives outlined in Pioneering & Connected.
