My post in the University of Limerick will support the MSc in Design for Health and Wellbeing. This programme will be based on working and co-designing with stakeholders right across healthcare, from hospitals, to mental health services, to public health, to wellbeing of consumers in society. It is delivered predominantly in a design studio environment, cultivating a culture of creativity, peer learning and transdisciplinary exploration. The core design modules are based on project work, problem solving and creativity, that centres on collaboration, human centred design and contemporary design processes. Students work across domains and at the borders of design and other disciplines.
Beyond this, I have lectured and served as teaching assistant on the following modules in University College Cork and Newcastle University:
At University College Cork
AP3299: Human-Computer Interaction
AP2012: Psychological Aspects of Behaviour in Organisations
AP1108: Research Methods in Psychology
AP1105: Experimental Design and Statistical Applications
AP6131: The Psychology of Ageing
AP6016: Advanced Research Methods and Data Analysis
At Newcastle University
CSC8602: Research Methods for Digital Civics
CSC8603: Human-Computer Interaction for Digital Civics
CSC3721: Introduction to Human-Computer Interaction
Beyond this, I have been employed in the redevelopment and redesign of several offline modules into online modules. During my time in UCC, I developed two online modules from scratch – one undergraduate module in Human-Computer Interaction, and a masters-level module in Advanced Qualitative Analysis. I was also employed in module-writing and course structuring for Dublin City University’s distance learning course, Oscail, between 2013-2015.
I am also an external supervisor for a really excellent PhD student at Newcastle University – James Hodge, whose work focuses on sensitive design for people with dementia.
