Research Model

The model for approaching research in the College is designed to provide a unifying theme for all scholarly work and to facilitate smaller groups of specialisms, in the form of research groups, where academic staff can pursue their research interests within a collegial environment, whilst staying on track with regards to the research strategy’s aims and priorities.

 

By aligning our approach to feedback received from the Visiting Professor for Research and to the College’s long-standing contribution of service and excellence to education, all academic staff should orientate their research practice towards the various aspects of education.

 

Our approach is therefore interdisciplinary, which allows for research groups to operate more coherently with closer connections to one another and to a common educational theme. This research approach is suited to our small institution that has distinctive areas of expertise and relevant partnerships with a wide range of educational providers. It also facilitates innovative developments and the integration of collaborative interdisciplinary projects involving partners.

 

The research groups that follow this interdisciplinary approach are titled: Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment (CPA); International Relations and Global Justice (IRGJ); and Irish-Medium Education (IME).
